Sustainable and climate-resilient management of high-Andean ecosystems

GIUZ scientists won an inter­national bid for a new project at the inter­section of climate change, eco­systems and bio­diversity in the Tropical Andes, opening important oppor­tunities for a dialogue and action with policy makers and other stake­holders.

The project is a collaborative effort between the EClim research group and the Earth System Science unit at GIUZ, with the link to the URPP Global Change and Biodiversity. "We are excited to have the opportunity to bring in our combined expertise", says Christian Huggel, head of EClim research group. "This opens up important opportunities for a dialogue and action with policy and practical adaptation work on the ground."
