Applications are open for the Wilson Center Latin American Program 2019/2020 Addressing Environmental Challenges in the Americas. Latin America and the Caribbean face major environmental challenges. For example, air, water, and noise pollution affect approximately 80 percent of urban populations. Further, Ocean plastics degrade the physical beauty of coastal areas, threatening livelihoods and marine life.

What is the path to a resilient and sustainable future for the region? What concrete measures can protect ecosystems and biodiversity? reduce the consumption of finite resources, promote energy, infrastructure, and transportation efficiency, as well as promote resilience and adaptation to climate change?

Moreover, the Vidanta Foundation and Wilson Center’s Latin American Program are pleased to issue a call for applications. Further, to conduct research about and propose concrete solutions to the range of environmental threats faced by countries in Latin America and the Caribbeans.
