Strategic actions for sustainable water use


The investigation promises to detect water availability, quality and evaluate water withdrawal impact as inputs to design strategic actions for sustainable water use.


Water availability


The idea is to evaluate the availability of water during the annual hydrological cycle. Adapt indicators to detect the ecological quality of the rivers near Total´s operations areas and evaluation tools for the physical habitat of fish to establish the potential impacts of human activities in the basin.


A coordinated effort


The study that will take three years will be possible with the coordinated efforts between IRD, scientists from Cochabamba and La Paz universities and the Friends of Nature Foundation (FAN) with Total E&P Bolivie´s contribution.
