1 Climate Change Adaptation High Mountain Ecosystems Colombia Ángela Andrade CI-COLOMBIA Deputy Chair CEM-IUCN

2 HIGH MOUNTAIN ECOSYSTEMS- HIGHLY VULNERABLE TO CLIMATE CHANGE Located over 2740msnm. 3.7% ( ha). Andean Forests 23% 48% Protected Areas. 70% of the population depends on ES. High Vulnerability to Water Supply for consumption, agriculture, energy. T increase: 1,4 (11-40)2,4 (41-70) 2,5 or more, over 2.700msnm. Increase in Extreme Events: (El Niño y La Niña). Glacier melting.

3 Objectives: Support Colombias efforts to define and implement specific pilot adaptation measures and policy options to meet the anticipated impacts from CC. Results: Reliable climate information to monitor major climate change vulnerabilities in health, mountain ecosystems and coastal and insular areas. Weather data and climate change projections published, including climate variability models. INAP

4 Chingaza-Sumapaz-Guerrero Conservation Corridor Main Actions Protection of Natural Capital and Ecosystem Services Ecological Restoration of key areas. Adaptation of Farming Systems.

5 Adaptation is at the center of sustainable development, and has to be internalized at different territorial/sectoral levels. Learning by doing processes, responding to demands. Formulated with best available science, and local knowledge. Long term process- important to have a broad focus acting as a catalyst, and mobilize multiple funding. Way to bring institutions to work cooperatively in a topic that requires cross-sectoral cooperation. Indicators have to be included, to ensure progress. Lessons Learned

6 Cross sectoral and bottom up approaches have to be developed. Guidance is needed to be promoted within sound ecosystem based management and to promote greater resilience of communities and ecosystems. A landscape management approach is key. Cross disciplinary skills that effectively address socio-ecological systems are necessary. Lessons Learned

7 Public &Private partnerships are essential. CCA should be downscaled with a territorial perspective. Vulnerability assessments should be focused on main ecosystem services and local livelihoods. CC and others threats have to be considered. Integrating livelihoods in a more comprehensive way would contribute to understand linkages between social and ecological systems. Conclusions
