29 January 2018 | Mitigation

Last week, Factor CO2 participated in the workshop on climate change in marine-coastal environments with key public-private actors in Guayaquil, Ecuador.

The workshop serves as a platform for the launch of the project promoted by the Andean Development Corporation (CAF, for its acronym in Spanish) - Development Bank of Latin America -, for the development of a methodology for the management of marine - coastal resources under the effect of climate change. The initiatives developed in the framework of the project focus on marine-coastal environments.

The main objectives of the workshop were the following:

  • Make known the results of the first phase of the project "Development of a methodology on marine - coastal management under the effect of climate change".
  • Receive feedback from the working groups for the development of the climate change vulnerability analysis methodology.
  • Share experiences on mitigation strategies and adaptation to climate change.

Factor's team, represented by Asier Sopelana, partner and project manager of Factor CO2 and Dayana Vega, consulant of Factor CO2, made a presentation in which they shared the experiences on mitigation strategies and adaptation to climate change of the company.

The next steps of the project will be the construction of the methodology within the framework of a participatory planning process with the different public and private sectors that will intervene in the different stages of the process.

This first workshop brings together a diverse group of actors who can contribute in the feedback of the study carried out by the International Center for the Investigation of the El Niño Phenomenon (CIIFEN), and establish guidelines for the subsequent stages of the study.

It is planned to carry out other workshops with public and private sectors that will be convened in a timely manner.

 

Factor CO2 is a group specialized in providing ideas and services in the face of climate change since 2004, through a wide international network of offices and collaborators.
