climate change impacts
Learn about the losses and damages mountain regions are incurring as a result of climate change in this case study from the 2023 Adaptation Gap Report.
How are plants overcoming geographical barriers to disperse their seeds? The GLORIA-Andes network continues to provide basic knowledge about high Andean ecosystems, essential to understanding how native species feel the effects of climate change.
Explore an analysis of available information on the vulnerability of hydrographic basins to climate change at the Andean continental level. The study analyzes seven basins, one for each Andean country, an includes a situational diagnosis and recommendations for reducing climate vulnerability in the Andes, as well as the identification of knowledge gaps and priority work issues for adaptation in the region.
