The emphasis in recent years has focused on models for co-management, water recharge areas, territorial scaling, watershed agencies, funding mechanisms, vulnerability and risk management, mainly related to flooding, landslides and pollution.
At CATIE, through our Climate Change and Watersheds Program, we support the development of instruments and tools to achieve sustainable management of watersheds in the territories.
In watershed management we work on:
We are part of GWP of Central America, an entity that relates us with activities in the region and through which agreements are made with national and international bodies, with which we develop research, technical cooperation and training activities.
We also develop education activities, offering the Masters in Integrated Watershed Management and Administration.
