Join this interdisciplinary workshop to learn from other data providers and data users on climate change and its impacts on environmental, ecological and social systems across the Andes, with the goal of informing effective climate change adaptation solutions.
Learn about the empirical and theoretical approaches currently used to quantify the ecosystem service provision in South American montane forests and alpine environments. A broad roadmap for the creation of a trandisciplinary network that can bridge the gap between the needs of modelling and data availability is proposed, in order to facilitate the implementation of mountain vegetation into Dynamic Global Vegetation Models that are used in Earth System Models.
