Natural Resource Management

natural web 

Natural Resource Management focuses on the connection between environmental systems and business. It promotes the sustainable utilization of major natural resources, such as land, water, air, minerals, energy, forests, fisheries, and wild flora and fauna. Together, these resources provide the ecosystem services that underpin human life and are the basis for most Latin American economies. This major is a novel field in the region; Nicaragua is a the best setting to pursue this degree as it offers a unique mix of environments and opportunities.
