Climate Change Adaptation in the tropical Andes
FAO´s commitment to climate change focuses on adaptation and mitigation practices in the agriculture sector and points to areas where climate change meets ongoing development efforts in order to improve the sustainable use of natural resources for increased production, income, food security and rural development.
In this context, FAO set up a technical cooperation project implemented between April 2008 and December 2010 (TCP/RLA/3112/3217) systematizing the efforts taking place in the communities located in the tropical Andes to cope with the challenges of climate change and disaster risk reduction. The project aimed atsupporting local, regional and national decision makers by analyzing the linkages between national and international strategies for climate change adaptation and the community based coping strategies already in place in selected communities throughout the tropical Andes in Bolivia, Colombia, Ecuador and Peru.
