The Fairchild Challenge reaches Colombia

LACC’s Title VI support of Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden’s Satellite Partners Program has helped make it possible for the K-12 program to go international. LACC affiliate faculty member Elizabeth Anderson, Director of International Research Programs, SEAS, and her Colombian colleagues spearhead the initiative to strengthen the capacity of higher-education institutions to provide high-quality professional training relevant to biodiversity, conservation and resource management in the rich Andean Amazon region under their USAID Initiative for Conservation in the Andean Amazon (ICAA). This month Fairchild published an article on their work, Where the Andes meet the Amazon: Bringing the Fairchild Challenge to the Colombian Amazon.
