An integrated river basin management approach for the proposed Inambari Dam in Peru

To enhance the socio-environmental policies and practices used in the planning and implementation of large-scale dams in the Peruvian Amazon through the application of an integrated river basin management approach, using the Inambari/Madre de Dios Basin in the Amazonian headwaters region as a pilot case. This approach encompasses the development of a watershed-level, scientific understanding of waters, wetlands, basins, and aquatic biodiversity dynamics and a robust strategic environmental impact assessment and mitigation framework for dams, as well as its subsequent dissemination as an exemplary case for use in other Andes-Amazon watersheds threatened by new dam construction.
