DescriptionThe proposed project supports regional efforts to define adaptation measures to meet the anticipated impacts from Climate Change in the Andean highlands and in prioritized Andean-origin river basins highly impacted by extreme weather events, identified in the national communications as highly vulnerable areas and selected for immediate attention, and to implement high priority adaptation activities. Priority will be given to adaptation activities of common interest to participating countries in the highly vulnerable highland and in glacier dependent watersheds, an ecosystem that is shared by the participating countries. The project intends to learn and disseminate lessons of worldwide application on how to adapt to climate change with this ecosystem-wide approach.
