Colombian Environmental Notes


Colombians are supporting practical plans to:

  • restore the native riparian vegetation along streams. They want cleaner water in the mountain streams and cleaner water for the agricultural settlements.
  • develop decentralized networks tor suppling many megawatts of renewable energy with the many small efficient generators now available.
  • improve shipping strategies so that less packaging and less fuel is used.
  • establish reliable methods of measuring progress in emissions reduction.
  • increase local food production in urban greenbelts and elsewhere.
  • encourage foot, bicycle, and public transit use with practical design and inventiveness.
  • devote more (60%) of new city development to green space.

Others elsewhere can and are supporting similar practical plans.
