Colombian Environmental Notes

Colombians are supporting practical plans to:

  • restore the native riparian vegetation along streams. They want cleaner water in the mountain streams and cleaner water for agricultural settlements.
  • develop decentralize networks for supplying many megawatts of renewable energy with the many efficient small generators now available. 
  • improve shipping strategies so as to use less packaging and less fuel.
  • establish reliable methods for measuring progress in emissions reduction.
  • increase local food production in urban greenbelts and elsewhere.
  • encourage foot, bicycle, and public transit use with practical design and inventiveness.
  • devote more (60%) of new city development to green space.

 

Others elsewhere can, and are,  supporting similar practical plans.
