Working Group on the Environment in Latin America (WGELA)
The Working Group on the Environment in Latin America (WGELA) is a collaborative effort between Duke University, UNC, and NC-State undergraduate and graduate students to promote a rich comprehension of environmental issues in Latin America through interdisciplinary collaboration.
WGELA aims to 1) foster a dialogue concerning critical environmental issues affecting Latin America, 2) improve the understanding of the social, historical, political, and cultural contexts in which these environmental issues are embedded, and 3) build capacity among an interdisciplinary and cross institutional group of individuals to address and conduct research on Latin American issues.
