This research trip will take place during Fletcher's Spring Break. We plan to take the non-stop Copa Airlines flight from Boston to Panama International Airport, stop over for a couple days to tour the expanded Panama Canal during the weekend of Saturday, March 18 to Sunday, March 19, and then fly to Colombia.
We are in the early planning stages of this research trip but plan to arrange meetings with Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos (a Fletcher graduate), the Secretariat of Colombia's $5B Climate Change Adaptation Fund, and the leadership of VallenPaz, a peacebuilding organization focused on improving supply chain efficiency from small Colombian farms to local and regional markets.
We hope to include port tours of Buenaventura, Cartagena, and Barranquilla, but need to sort out the logistics to see which port visits can be fit into such an ambitious itinerary with only one week in Colombia.
