Semester: Spring 2007
Instructor: Bill Moeller
Partner:Mesoamerican Development Institute (MDI)
The Mesoamerican Development Institute (MDI) works in Central America to promote sustainable methods for coffee farmers to make a profit, by setting up co-ops where the farming families have control, using renewable energy technologies, and hermetic packaging. They also work with local organizations, such as the National College of Forestry in Honduras and in this case acted as a liaison with the faculty member.
Students were assigned the development and writing of a report for the National College of Forestry in Honduras that addressed issues in their regional location regarding water resources using concepts learned in class.
