INTER-INSTITUTIONAL, MULTI-SECTORALANALYSIS OF VULNERABILITY AND ADAPTATION TO CLIMATE CHANGE FOR THE AGRICULTURAL SECTOR IN THE UPPER CAUCA RIVER BASIN IMPACTING ADAPTATION POLICIES
Agriculture, Climate Change, Adaptation, Vulnerability
This project aims to promote scientific and technical conditions required to ensure the adaptability and permanence of the most important productive agricultural value-chains in the upper Cauca River Basin under climate change scenarios in the short, medium and long term.

1. To define a communication strategy at the departmental, regional and sub-sectoral level to disseminate the impacts identified in the Second National Communication for the Andean agricultural sector, generating capacity for the decision making about climate change risks among sectoral leaders (agricultural sub-sector) and regional, departmental and municipal authorities.

2. To involve agricultural federations, communities, and authorities in refining and implementing indicators and methodologies to be used in order to prepare the vulnerability analysis for the agricultural sector in the Cauca River upper basin and in future scenarios that could be useful for multisectoral decision-making. Such methodology will be defined according to what has been outlined in the National Development Plan of Colombia (PND 2010–2014), and the scenarios should be prepared in coordination with the corresponding authority.

3. To generate agreements to strengthen existing platforms to compile, capture, standardize, and manage hydro-meteorological, physical – biological, social and economic information required to analyze vulnerability to climate change for the upper Cauca River basin and improve information availability and exchange in the future. The resulting agreements should ensure that the information is comparable and complementary to the official information, generated by the corresponding authorities.

4. To conduct a vulnerability analysis of climate variability and climate change of agricultural subsectors in the region (and the corresponding future scenarios) for the upper Cauca River basin and discuss findings with agricultural federations, communities and public authorities to generate recommendations for adaptation in the region, which are appropriate in the national context

5. Generate agreement among decision-makers at national, regional and local level in the upper Cauca River basin, in which they commit to incorporating criteria of vulnerability and adaptation to climate change in public policy documents such as development plans and/or physical planning.

6. Generate  lessons  learned  on  the  process  that  may  be  useful  for  other  analyses  of vulnerability to climate change in other regions of the country or in generating the National Strategy for Adaptation for the Agricultural Sector, which the DNP is working on.

1. Definition of the priority sub-sectors for inclusion in the analysis
2. Elaboration of indicators and methodology to prepare the vulnerability analysis for the agricultural sector in the Cauca River upper basin and in future scenarios that could be useful for multisectoral decision-making. The model should be readily implementable across multiple sectors, sensitive to the realities of information availability, and takes full advantage of quantitative modeling approaches for vulnerability assessment.

 

3. Identification and strengthen existing information-sharing platforms

4. Development of a vulnerability analysis of climate variability and climate change of agricultural subsectors in the region (and the corresponding future scenarios) for the upper Cauca River basin and discuss findings with agricultural federations, communities and public authorities to generate recommendations for adaptation in the region, which are appropriate in the national context

5. Agreements to incorporate adaptation measures into public policies

6. Lessons learned for future regional and national processes regarding adaptation measures for the agricultural sector
