CLIMATE RESILIENT PATHWAYS IN CENTRAL AMERICA: THE ROLE OF WATER IN TRANSITION SYSTEMS

Date and time: Saturday, November 12, 15:30 – 16:30 (Egyptian time)

Place: COP27 – EUROCLIMA Pavilion

Organizing institutions::  

Universidad del Valle de Guatemala (UVG), Panel Intergubernamental sobre Cambio Climático (IPCC) y Climate Service Center, Germany (GERICS)

Description::

This session will present the results of the IPCC Working Group 2 (Impacts, Adaptation and Vulnerability) report focused on the findings for Central America. One of the largest impacts for the region is on water resources, so we will address the issues of water, forests and biodiversity. Water plays a primary role as a cross-cutting factor that impacts all socio-economic sectors, so we will also address the impacts of water and food security on issues of poverty, inequality and migration. In this way, the link between climate vulnerabilities and systemic vulnerabilities will be discussed. Finally, the multiple opportunities for action will be highlighted, especially in the transitions and transformations that are required in the next decade.
