    Module 2: Vulnerability and climate change impact


    Moderator: Juan Torres

    Vulnerability and climate change impact

    Duration: 6 weeks

    Dear members of EbA community of practice, Module 2 starts today with these key ideas: vulnerability and climate change impact. The question is how are ecosystem services and diversity related issues incorporated in decision-making? We know that knowledge communities working on these issues have their own definitions of vulnerability and mitigation. The objective of this module is to answer the following questions:

    - What is the aggregate value of a vulnerability analysis? What are the basic components and how are they used in decision-making?
    - How are ecosystem services integrated in a vulnerability analysis? The hypothesis is that ecosystem conservation increases resilience and ecosystem degradation reduces it.

    As part of this module, we will have a presentation by Dr. Elma Montaña, Assistant Director at the Inter-American Institute for Global Change Research, who is an expert in vulnerability, climate change impact and EbA. The Module 2 webinar will take place on Tuesday 29th March at 11 am, Panama time.

    Please join us in this webinar.
