Title: Megaprojects:The Indigenous of Colombia in the Orinoco


Description: This article discusses the Recovery of the Meta River Project, an infrastructure project developed through the Initiative for Integration of Regional Infrastructure in South America (IIRSA). The project aims to transform the Meta River - a major river located in the Orinoco Basin of Colombia and Venezuela - into a permanent waterway for shipping that serves to integrate the region. The article also looks at how this project relates to another project in the works, The Revival of the Orinoco Project. Throughout the article, the author highlights how these projects could potentially impact indigenous communities in the region, with a particular focus on the Caño Owl Reserve, located in Colombia.
