"El Perú es un país con gran diversidad biocultural, en donde diversos actores contribuyen desde la ciencia y la práctica, así como mediante saberes tradicionales, al desarrollo e implementación efectiva de soluciones basadas en la naturaleza."
The final workshop of the “Scaling up Mountain Ecosystem-based Adaptation (EbA)” project, organized by the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) and with the participation of representatives from Peru, Colombia, Kenya, Uganda, Nepal and Bhutan, was held from October 24 to 26, 2022.
The meeting, which took place at the IUCN offices in Washington D.C., aimed to validate the impact assessment results and identify opportunities to continue developing the resilience of mountain communities and ecosystems.
Florencia Zapata, IdM co-director and EbA specialist, also presented the main findings of the effectiveness and impact assessment conducted in Miraflores, Canchayllo, Tanta, and Tomas communities, in the Nor Yauyos-Cochas Landscape Reserve. The results of this evaluation will allow generating evidence on how the EbA measures are helping the villagers to adapt to the current and future impacts of climate variability and change.
