The challenges presented in this chapter reflect the perception of Renova Foundation’s management team in March 2017 about the priority issues to be addressed in our remediation actions. After liaising with the affected population and program managers, we selected the topics in this theme which currently present the greatest challenges or progress. They do not embrace all the themes we are working on, but can be seen as a sample of the most critical topics raised during our first eight months of operations, from August 2016 to March 2017.
