Short Description: 
Integrated and Participatory Risk Management in Peru’s Lake Parón Glacier Basin
Description: 
Building on his extensive experience in Peru’s Cordillera Blanca, Adam French’s project will help local communities in the Santa River watershed to build technical skills in hazard assessment and risk management, and in methods for meteorological and hydrologic data collection. The project’s focus is the development of a community-driven, participatory data collection and monitoring program in the Lake Parón glacial basin. It will provide vital information about the region’s shifting hydrologic regime, which will strengthen highland-lowland linkages that foster networks of cooperation to sustainably manage vital hydrologic resources in the region.
