Guide for the manual entitled “Learning to conserve water and protect our micro-watersheds”

This guide is intended to support the training component of the manual entitled “Learning to conserve water and protect our micro-watersheds.” The document was prepared in the context of an inter-institutional cooperation agreement between the Institute for Water Management and the Environment (IMA), of the Regional Government of Cusco, and the Rural Water Supply and Sanitation Services Project (SANBASUR), with the financial support of SDC-Humanitarian Aid.
