At CONDESAN we are committed to sustainable management of natural resources contributing in that way to overcome poverty in the Andes region. For this purpose, we generate and share information and knowledge on the environment and Andean rural societies. We foster processes for strengthening Andean human and institutional capital in order to have new sustainable development leaders in the Andes. We also foster collective dialogue processes that result in recommendations on public policy at the national and sub-national levels. Since it was founded in 1993, CONDESAN has consolidated its position as an important Andean platform for issues related to natural resource management and sustainable development, particularly in water and watershed management.
