dc.description.abstractAdapting to Change in the Andean Highlands: Practices and Strategies to Address Climate and Market Risks in Vulnerable Agro-ecosystems (SANREM CRSP LTRA 4) is focused on identifying the consequences of climate change for one of the poorest and most vulnerable regions in the Western Hemisphere and develop adaptive capacities. The project uses a cross disciplinary and participatory approach, linking biophysical and social sciences research with local knowledge systems through participatory institutions. The presentations introduces some of the key findings in the context of climate change. In the biophysical sciences the presentation reports on Altiplano climate change projections for this century. The presentation also examines the mitigation and adaptation aspects of organic soil amendment practices in rural communities and anticipating and responding to plant disease and pests risks. Finally, the presentation discusses findings on strategies for enhancing the adaptive capacity of small Andean producers.en
