Objectives 

Objectives of segment 1: Clarifications by DAR

Objectives of segment 2: Clarifications by Fundación Plurales

Objectives of segment 3:

To expose - at a global level - the critical situation of mountain ecosystems in the Tropical Andes, in the context of global climate change; thus fostering a debate that influences the formulation of 'proposals for regional and international action' for the protection of these natural spaces that are strategic for the generation and regeneration of biodiversity, agro-biodiversity and water security in the Andean territories.

The Tropical Andes are one of the regions with the highest degree of exposure and sensitivity to global environmental changes. Therefore, we will highlight the extreme weather events already faced by the northern (Colombia-Ecuador) and southern (Peru-Bolivia) regions of the Tropical Andes, and provide recommendations for their preservation - aimed at policy makers and decision makers - based on the implementation of climate justice mechanisms, environmental human rights and the recognition of nature as a 'subject of rights'.


Description

Description of segment 1 (DAR)

Description of segment 2 (Fundación Plurales)

Description of segment 3 (Biosfera – Future Research):

The Tropical Andes - the planet's first biodiversity hotspot - are already facing the severe impacts of global change. Indeed, the IPCC SPECIAL REPORT ON THE OCEAN AND CRYOSPHERE (SROCC, Sept 2019) confirms glacier retreat in all high mountain areas of the world, changes in snow cover, water availability, effects on permafrost and permanently frozen land, underscoring that: "Decisions made today are critical for the future of the oceans and the cryosphere".

Thus, the IPCC projects that - under the trend of high GHG emissions - glaciers in the Tropical Andes will lose more than 80 percent of their current glacier mass.

In response to the critical context, we aim to influence with reflections and proposals - from the perspective of climate justice and the recognition of the rights of nature - for the consideration of this issue in the design of policies and decision-making at regional and global scales.
