In keeping with sustainable development principles and environmental management best practices, the Panama Canal Expansion will use unique water-saving basins to help preserve the freshwater resources along the waterway, reutilizing water from the basins into the locks. The new locks will require less water than the current locks system, thus saving 60% of the water actually used.

http://www.fdcea.com/ Panama is the first country to understand that climate change is impacting traditional agriculture in Latin America and due to these permanent changes is preparing to completely embrace new technologies such as controlled environment agriculture (which includes vertical farming, greenhouse vegetable production and indoor agriculture.) Their preparation includes designing, developing and constructing the Research Center for Controlled Environment Agricultural Production, or CIPAC for short. CIPAC is a groundbreaking and innovative initiative spearheaded by the Ministry of Agricultural Development (MIDA) and the Foundation for Development in Controlled Environment Agriculture (FDCEA). The FDCEA thought leader and a non-profit that works with experts to define strate...
This video enters into the forests of Panama to learn more about the challenges, opportunities and realities of forest ecosystems and the people who inhabit them. 300 million people live in the world's forests. 1.6 billion people directly depend on them for their livelihoods, and 7 billion people -- that is, all of humanity -- need them to live. Forests carry out vital functions that decisively contribute to life on Earth and are essential for combating climate change. Recognizing the benefits that forests provide us, sustainably managing them and conserving them will help to overcome poverty and achieve sustainability. This video was produced in the framework of the United Nations Programme for Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Forest Degradation (UN-REDD).

Environmental Brigades Panama is an exciting opportunity to join the world's largest student led sustainable development organization. Our mission is to empower students to promote sustainable solutions for rural communities in Eastern Panama in order to reduce environmental damage, reverse degradation and preserve the natural environment. The Environmental Brigade program works to achieve these goals with a large scale reforestation project in two indigenous communities that we currently work in, Embera Puru and Piriati Embera. With your help, we hope to introduce a new methodology of permaculture style planting, instead of the traditionally destructive slash and burn methods that the communities are accustomed to in Eastern Panama. The success of Environmental Brigades Pan...

Panama is one of Latin America's most diverse landscapes, with riches and luxury living alongside drastic poverty. The Panama Canal, however, is a point of pride for many - a feat that is unparalleled in the world of waterway engineering. Designed by the French and finished by the Americans a century ago, it is one of the largest public construction projects in US history. The canal was built to ease the movement of water vessels, such as marine and cargo ships, between two of the world's largest bodies of water - the Pacific and Atlantic oceans. Every day, more than 40 ships pass through the canal. But despite increasing cargo tonnage, Panama needed to expand the canal to accommodate a new generation of container ships, the so-called neo-Panamax, which are too big for the old canal lock...

I went up to check out the "environmental disaster" at the new Panama City Airport north off Highway 79 and found little out of the ordinary. In fact I actually saw no indication of any environmental damage, whatsoever, but I'm no scientist. The scientists that do know have said that no major damage has been done and what issues they did have are the in the process of being corrected through communication with the FDEP.
