Climate change is a concern for small farmers who are in the Bolivian highlands, affecting their livelihoods. For this, practical measures are required for prevention and mitigation of damage caused by extreme climatic events (frost, drought, hailstorms and floods), a requirement which can be summarized as the need for an agricultural risk management, as these two activities are the basis for food security and incomes of small farmers living in daily risk. In this context, this document presents the systematization of the most successful local practices, presenting the economic and institutional frameworks I which they are implemented.

Farmers in the rural communities of Cuyuni and Jullicunca, in Cusco, as well as those of the communities of Taype and Janac Ayllu Escalera in Puno, act considering productive relationships, their environment and their experiences in the community. This document systematizes some good practices of natural resources management, as sustainable farming and forestry techniques have been introduced, which replace migratory and predatory agriculture. These techniques are sustainable at the environmental, economic and social levels in the context of climate change, and include good practices such as forestry and agroforestry systems, management of seed potato and integrated crop management among others.
