This study examines how the continued development of hydroelectric dams could affect one of the largest wetland systems in South America.
The water program drives innovation in water management by developing, using, and transferring planning tools and participatory process that promote holistic, transparent and robust decision-making.
We work on national, regional and local scales, mapping out watersheds and future conditions using SEI’s Water Evaluation And Planning System (WEAP). WEAP enables policy-makers and stakeholders to consider how management plans will affect cities, industries and farms, as well as long-neglected interests such as wildlife habitat and vulnerable communities.
Our researchers are located in both Davis, California and Somerville, Massachusetts.
