Policymaking

Environmental stewardship and policy making efforts in Futaleufu.

sep

Futaleufú is poised to grow rapidly in the coming years, presenting new problems that cannot be adequately addressed by Chile’s current legal mechanisms and policies. Many of the laws and regulations governing activities that could occur in the watershed – such as the mining code and privatized water rights – are already outdated. The Futaleufú Riverkeeper is determined to explore changes to the legal structures and policy currently in place and, where appropriate, involve ourselves in the greater fight to save Chile from the same pressures facing the watershed we protect. By focusing a portion of our resources on the bigger picture we hope to affect meaningful change to the way Patagonia’s resources will be managed for future generations.
