Ashoka Fellow
Fellow Since 2015
    This description of Sarah Otterstrom's work was prepared when Sarah Otterstrom was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 2015.
    Sarah Otterstrom is collaborating with the government, private and citizen sector and involving the citizen sector in Nicaragua’s biologically diverse dry tropical forest, in order to create a form of development conservation that both empowers local populations and changes the culture of environmental stewardship. Sarah has adapted the concept of environmental corridors so that it continues to support biodiversity, but integrates a concept of human thriving as a part of ecosystem health.
