A methodological proposal for the evaluation of farmer's adaptation to climate variability, mainly due to drought in watersheds in Central America
The current study shows the process and the results of a methodology proposed to contribute with the issue of how to evaluate the adaptation to climate variability and future climate change. The proposed methodology consists ...
Climatology-based regional modelling of potential vegetation and average annual long-term runoff for Mesoamerica
Mean annual cycles of runoff, evapotranspiration, leaf area index (LAI) and potential vegetation were modelled for Mesoamerica using the SVAT model MAPSS with different climatology datasets. We calibrated and validated the ...
Modelling Potential Equilibrium States of Vegetation and Terrestrial Water Cycle of Mesoamerica under Climate Change Scenarios
The likelihood and magnitude of the impacts of climate change on potential vegetation and the water cycle in Mesoamerica is evaluated. Mesoamerica is a global biodiversity hotspot with highly diverse topographic and ...
Ecosystem-based adaptation to climate change: what role for policy-makers, society and scientists?
In developing countries where economies and livelihoods depend largely on ecosystem services, policies for adaptation to climate change should take into account the role of these services in increasing the resilience of ...
Ecosystem services and hydroelectricity in Central America: modelling service flows with fuzzy logic and expert knowledge
Because ecosystem services are generally not produced and used in the same place, their assessment should consider the flows of services from ecosystems to users. These flows depend on the characteristics and ...
Servicios ecosistemicos e hidroenergía en Costa Rica
El objetivo de este estudio es identificar los ecosistemas forestales que provén servicios ecosistémicos hídricos (SEH) importantes para la adaptación del sector hidroenergético al cambio climático en Costa Rica. Se ...
