URACCAN IREMADES Bluefields enclosure, participates in consulting on Water, Sanitation and Hygiene
Contributing to the care and preservation of Mother Earth
As part of the processes of care and good management of natural resources, the Institute of Natural Resources, Environment and Sustainable Development (IREMADES-URACCAN) in the Bluefields campus participates in interinstitutional consultancy, led by the Regional Government.
This consultancy is established for the purpose of conducting an "exploratory study to identify needs for improvement of information management systems and monitoring of Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (ASH) services in Nicaragua, for follow-up to Sustainable Development Goal 6 (STO6)".
On behalf of the institute was attended by Ing. Marvin Solís, IREMADES extension technician, who stated that this study is carried out to identify the needs in water and sanitation processes, not only in the region, but also at the national level.
"As URACCAN we share the diagnoses that we have made since the institute in different communities such as Awaltara, Rio maíz and San Juan de Nicaragua, based on studies on natural resources," he said.
In addition, Ing. Solís emphasized the work that IREMADES has done to improve the rational use of water, referring to the donation of filters that help improve the quality of this vital liquid, so that the population consumes it safely, he also assured that as an institution they prioritize monitoring of these processes in the region.
It is necessary to mention the participation of students of the enclosure, specifically of the agroforestry engineering career, who work in the reforestation of water basins, in order to reduce the degree of pollution that currently exists.
