CAMINAR (Catchment Management and Mining Impacts in Arid and Semi-Arid South America) has the general aim of contributing to the establishment of policy options, management strategies and technologies for the sustainable management of ecosystems in those river-basins of arid and semi-arid South America which are subject to impacts from mining. In this context, the project intends to derive a set of principles for future policy development and implementation to protect fragile ecosystems and dependant human communities in arid/semi-arid regions. To this aim, a review of the policy context for the management of arid river-basins impacted with mining has been prepared in the three â€˜demonstrationâ€™ countries Peru, Bolivia and Chile, and open policy issues in each country have been identified.
