Cowater awarded contract to strengthen environmental management of mining and energy activities in Peru News

27 January, 2016

Cowater will soon commence project activities in Peru following the recent contract signing with Global Affairs Canada (GAC). The GAC-funded Improving Environmental Management of Mining and Energy Activities Project (15.3M CAD, 2016-2022) aims to streamline how the Peruvian Government handles environmental impact assessments for mining and energy projects while strengthening the rigour and analysis of these assessments. Specifically, the project intends to consolidate the leadership role of the Ministry of the Environment over environmental issues related to large mining and energy projects and strengthen the capacity of regional governments responsible for handling the environmental impact assessments of small and medium-scale mining projects.
