Three sessions were held by the ICC, which consisted of face-to-face classes, workshops and practical activities. For this first module, a field trip was conducted through the upper, middle and lower part of the Ocosito River basin, with the aim of putting into practice what participants learned.

More than 50 people are participating in the Diploma -BANASA workers, community leaders of 12 communities and Municipal Firemen.
