1 Practices and Strategies to Address Climate and Market Risks in Vulnerable Ecosystems LTR4: ADAPTING TO CHANGE IN THE ANDEAN HIGHLANDS

2 Our Team

3 Resilience or Trap: Assets and Ability to Recover from Shock and Stress About depletion of assets and poverty traps: Ellis; Zimmerman and Carter; Valdivia et al; de Waal and Tumushabe; Sheik; Sacks et al Adaptation - Resilience Poverty Trap Time Livelihoods Ability to Recover is f (number & type of shocks; assets)

4 The project’s five objectives: 1)Develop a shared understanding of the ecosystem drivers of change in Andean Ecosystems. 2)Measure the role of market and climate risks (objective and perceived) on livelihood strategies, and the role of assets on risk perceptions and strategies. Response to perceptions of the relative risks associated with these changes. 3)Explicitly link local and new knowledge to produce practices and information that provide alternatives to adapt to change 4)Evaluate and identify market integration opportunities and institutions that contribute to resilience. 5)Develop methods that integrate these knowledge systems, build capacities and capabilities to adapt to change – pathway that enables research impact
