Conservation Strategy Fund's applied research delivers objective, clear information for conservation decision-makers. Just as importantly, these studies are learning opportunities for our partners; CSF course graduates and others work side-by-side with us, gaining skills, confidence and the ability to do conservation economics work on their own in the future. Our studies are all freely available here and some are summarized in our Policy Brief series.

Análisis comparativo de distintas rutas para la interconexión eléctrica Colombia - Panamá

Series number: 
41

There is only one place in all the Americas where a person can walk from the Pacific Ocean to the Atlantic without crossing a road. It’s the so-called Darien Gap in the extreme east of Panama on the border with Colombia. The remote roadless area is home to forests, wetlands and indigenous reserves. Another thing it doesn’t have is electric power-lines. Since 1998 Panama and Colombia have discussed connecting their electric grids to increase flexibility and lower costs. They have generally proposed passing the wires through the Darien Gap. Conservation Strategy Fund joined the Panama Ministry of the Environment recently to examine alternatives to this route, weighing financial construction costs, potential ecological and cultural damage and national security risks.
