The Foundation for Renewable Energy and Sustainable Development in Colombian Communities — FERDESCOL – is a nonprofit organization recently created in Colombia with the support of Market Analysis Ltd. Despite Colombia’s emergence as one of Latin America’s most robust economies over the past decade, many rural areas remain undeveloped and bereft of basic infrastructure. FERDESCOL aims is to tackle these problems by first addressing basic community needs using solar and wind technology to provide reliable sources of energy and safe drinking water. Our longer-term goal is to work with these communities in economic development and poverty reduction. Baker & McKenzie S.A.S. is supporting us with pro bono legal services.
