Summer 2019 Research Fellowship March 4, 2019 Español abajo
Jo’ Ja’ Jcuxlejaltic ~ Water is Life Problem: Many springs and wells that provide water to rural indigenous communities throughout Chiapas, Mexico are drying up; this situation is creating an immediate crisis. The long-term prognosis for water systems in rural Chiapas looks worse.
Research position and objectives:
Schools for Chiapas seeks an experienced researcher to carry out a detailed literature survey of academic and practical studies investigating forest-based ecosystems that have attempted to maintain and/or restore water table levels and recharge springs in the face of a drying environment. The results of this three month research investigation will be used to implement climate-change abatement strategies in the autonomous Mayan communities of Chiapas, Mexico. Desmi A. C.
