Adaptation to climate change in coastal cities is a main challenge for both countries as coastal areas are more exposed and vulnerable to the negative effects of climate change and the impacts of weather-related disasters.

The project objective is to reduce vulnerability to climate-related floods, mud flows and landslides in three coastal cities by mainstreaming a risk-based approach to adaptation, building collaboration and networking, and developing a culture of adaptation. The project focus on the hydrometeorological hazards of mud flows in Antofagasta and Taltal, and flooding and landslides in Esmeraldas.

The project is organised into three components:

  • Component 1: Priority Actions to increase resilience
  • Component 2: Strengthen capacities for adaptation
  • Component 3: ICTs and partnership between coastal cities in Latin America
