Research: 

During the JSD Program, Carlos Andrés research the interaction of different governance regimes in the Amazon region, with a focus on the systems related with indigenous peoples, climate change, and extractivism. His project aims to understand—from the local perspective—how different regimes overlap in the same territory and analyze who are taking the decisions, how are they being taken, and the power relationships between local, national, and international actors in the name of conserving—or exploiting—the rainforest.
