Orinoco River Basin Report Card

The Colombian Orinoco River Basin Report Card—the first of its kind in South America—came out in July 2016. Through a series of workshops held across the region, approximately 150 stakeholders came together to pinpoint the most important values and threats to their basin, known as indicators. What we learn about the health of each one of these indicators helps determine the overall health of the river basin. The Colombian Orinoco River Basin received a B-, meaning it's in moderately good health, but some action is needed now.
