Climate Change Adaptation in Colombia
Final report Piedras River Fundation
FAO, in collaboration with the Foundation for the Rio Piedras basin launched the School Strategy for Adaptation to Climate Change as teaching and educational support to the implementation process of adaptation to climate change of the families served by the project. These activities strengthened the capacity of communities to make effective and efficient use of natural resources in the context of the environmental dimension of development that arises from the approach of what is economically viable, socially just and environmentally sustainable.
Final report Popayan's Sewerage and Aqueduct Implementation of strategies and measures for climate change adaptation Paez de Quintana Indigenous Council
This report presents the progress made during the design and implementation of strategies and adaptation measures as vulnerability analysis, in a pilot area of the Piedras river basin, which developed a participatory approach, with the inhabitants of the villages relevant has advanced strongly with the institutions and communities in the development of shared management, reinforcing the operational capacity of each agency and organization involved.
Implementation of strategies and measures for climate change adaptation Poblazon Indigenous Council
This report contains the focus, vision, strategies and outcomes of consultation processes, definition and investments, which were defined together with social organizations to implement the transition path for adaptation to climate change, which has formulated taking into account the results of vulnerability analysis and cultural characteristics of the terrain
Implementation of strategies and measures for climate change adaptation Popayan's Farmer Association ASOCAMPO
This report presents the development of transition path where implemented adaptation measures to climate change for the three axes of characterization: a) protection and water conservation, b) security and food self-sufficiency and c) the ownership and protection territory in the Las Piedras river basin.
[-] Practical guide for the characterization, analysis and planification of parcels and identification of the vulnerability to climate change baseline
This guide seeks to increase the sustainability of production systems, reduce vulnerability and enhance resilience to climate change. It comes a conceptual and methodological proposal developed by the University of Cauca and was validated by the technical staff the project with indigenous producers and farmers in the Central Zone of the Cauca. The guide is divided into three parts: a) Characterization of the predominant production systems of farmers and indigenous people, in different climatic zones in the area, b) Analysis by indicators of the results of the characterization to determine sustainability and vulnerability production systems and c) identification and definition of strategies to address climate change and improve the sustainability of production systems with spatial vision, and define "routes for the transition"
Conceptual and methodological framework for the characterization, analysis and planning of parcels
This framework presents the assumptions underlying the proposal developed under the project "to greater sustainability of the system, less vulnerable and better adapted to climate change." This hypothesis is based on the attributes of a sustainable system from the point of view agroecological attributes are similar to those that offer better alternatives for adaptation to climate change and reduce their vulnerability. Additionally, note that many of the alternatives that improve the sustainability of production systems, contribute effectively to prevent and reduce the causes of climate change and mitigate its effects on production systems and the wider community.
Strategies for climate change adaptation in the Centre area of Cauca
This paper presents a comprehensive proposal which involves the livestock (main activity), food security, rational use, protection and conservation of environmental resources, and strengthening economic and socio-cultural area. These agroforestry and silvopastoral systems take a significant importance due to the climatic pressure by now Colombia and Downtown crossing, as these mechanisms become a form of adaptation to climate change unpredictable and unavoidable.
