The report entitled “Participatory Environmental Monitoring Committees in Mining Contexts: Lessons from Nine Case Studies in Four Latin American Countries” [Comités de Monitoreo Ambiental Participativo en Contextos Mineros: Lecciones a Partir de Nueve Estudios de Casos en Cuatro Países de Latinoamérica] presents the results of simultaneous investigations conducted in Argentina, Bolivia, Panama and Peru.
