Sofia Vargas Romero
I am a geographer graduated from the Pontificia Universidad Católica del Perú working on freelance consultancy related to environmental governance strengthening, conservation in indigenous territories, watershed management, forest monitoring and environmental policy analysis for NGOs and international organizations. I have participated in projects related to the design and implementation of compensation mechanisms for ecosystem services, modeling of land use change and reduction of deforestation focused on the Peruvian Amazon Rainforest. In 2015 I was part of "Economic Tools for Conservation" course taught at Stanford University by Conservation Strategy Fund and the Stanford Woods Institute for the Environment. I am an associate of the San Martin REDD + Roundtable and the Peruvian School of Geographers.
