The aim of this programme is to provide an improved understanding of the rate of glacial retreat in Peru and its impact on water security and natural hazards.
This collaboration between the UK and Peru aims to provide an improved understanding of the rate of glacial retreat in Peru and its impact on water security and natural hazards.
This programme is funded by the Newton-Paulet Fund, an initiative agreed between the UK government and Consejo Nacional de Ciencia, Tecnología e Innovación Tecnológica (CONCYTEC). The objective is to support Peru’s research and innovation capacity for its sustainable growth in the long term.
This collaborative programme will provide increased knowledge on glacial retreat, and the impacts that this will have on water supply in the region. The outputs will also provide further knowledge on the increased risk of natural hazards that glacial retreat causes, which can be used to inform disaster mitigation strategies.
