Cooperation agreement between Peru and the United Kingdom

CONIDA, the Peruvian Space Agency, the UK Space Agency and HR Wallingford have signed a cooperation agreement.

This agreement represents an important step forward in the development of the project, since not only are the images of the Peruvian satellite going to be incorporated into the system to prevent the failure of dams and tailings deposits, but DAMSAT is also helping to join efforts to protect vulnerable communities and prevent environmental disasters.

The signing of the agreement was witnessed by the Vice Minister of Mines of Peru, August Cauti, representatives of OSINERGMIN, OEFA, CONIDA, officials of the British Embassy and a delegation from HR Wallingford and FUNAINHI.

The Deputy Head of Mission and Consul General of the British Embassy in Lima, Colin Gray, highlighted the importance of research and innovation projects as a way of solving the environmental challenges of our time and achieve sustainable development.

Likewise, Major General FAP Javier Tuesta of CONIDA, expressed his support for the initiative presented by DAMSAT and reinforced the commitment of  Peru to apply the latest technological advances.
