• Sustainability: The Panama Canal Expansion and the Environment

    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.

    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...

  • A forest of opportunities in Panama

    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).

The dam has been the subject of significant controversy for years, as the construction project threatens the local population of the Ngäbe-Buglé, an indigenous tribe of Panama. According the Ngäbe, the dam will displace thousands of local inhabitants and impacts thousands more who rely on the river for potable water and fishing.

You will develop a deeper understanding of the environmental challenges in under-resourced rural communities and get a taste of the complexities of sustainable development. Environmental degradation is a global issue that won't be solved overnight, but we ask that you join a brigade and see how one week in a rural Panama can make a difference for these communities and their future generations.

The FDCEA thought leader and a non-profit that works with experts to define strategies and goals in the world of ag tech and research. Together they believe controlled environment agriculture is one solution for farmers looking to answer to a global problem of a growing population and environmental challenges. The Research Center will be a place where new growers and students can join commercial growers and together learn how to better balance climate, air flow, light, nutrition to grow lettuce, herbs, tomatoes, cucumbers, strawberries, melons and much more. This is great news for Panama and all of Latin America.

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 locks. To cater to this larger transit tonnage and global shipping demands, Panama decided to take its two-lane canal and add a new third lane. The new canal designs are set to improve upon the current functionality, such as with the new gates that slide across the channel chambers as opposed to the traditional 'open and shut' gates. Reinvented basins are also a new feature, helping move ships across the canal chambers using water-saving methods. The Panama Canal expansion project is projected to double the capacity of the canal and hence considered a major boon for ports and the Panamanian government. However, the economic promise of the canal runs alongside environmental concerns. How will the canal's expansion affect Panama's ecosystem? TechKnow travelled to Panama to look at the engineering behind the massive expansion project and to hear from biologists and community leaders about Panama's changing ecosystem. - Subscribe to our channel: http://aje.io/AJSubscribe - Follow us on Twitter: https://twitter.com/AJEnglish - Find us on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/aljazeera - Check our website: http://www.aljazeera.com/
