Andean and African climate projects aim to reap benefits of regional collaboration

Regional projects improve efficiency and create learning opportunities

The Andean region is vulnerable to trends in precipitation, temperature and climate variability due to the El Niño-Southern Oscillation phenomenon, which has become more frequent in recent years, burdening communities already suffering from high levels of inequality.

Together, they will produce and communicate scientific knowledge that will guide societies to best adapt to the impacts of climate change.
