Diversidad biológica y cambio climático Infografia

Español:

La biodiversidad está reconocida cada vez más como una parte integral de la adaptación al cambio climático. Guatemala ha tomado medidas para incorpoar la Adaptación basada en Ecosistemas (AbE) como una manera de proteger la biodiversidad y los servicios ecosistémicos, ratificando las directrices voluntarias del CBD en cuanto al diseño y la implementación de la AbE para la adaptación al cambio climático y la reducción del riesgo de desastres. Guatemala tiene una gran riqueza de biodiversidad, sin embargo, también uno de los países mas vulnerables al cambio climático. Por lo tanto, la preservación de su biodiversidad por el uso de la AbE puede ofrecer una estrategia de adaptación y aumentar la resiliencia del país contra los efectos del cambio climático.

Biological diversity and climate change Infographic

English:

Biodiversity is being increasingly recognized as an integral part of climate change adaptation. Guatemala has taken steps to incorporate Ecosystem-based Adaptation as a means of protecting both biodiversity and ecosystem services. It has done so by ratifying the voluntary guidelines for the design and effective implementation of ecosystembased approaches to climate change adaptation and disaster risk reduction and supplementary information. Guatemala is highly rich in biodiversity, yet it is also one of the countries that is most vulnerable to climate change. Therefore preserving its biodiversity through the use of EbA can offer the country added protection and coping mechanisms against the effects of climate change.

Climate-SDG integration project flyer

The IKI Climate-SDG’s Integration project’s objective is to contribute to an enabling policy environment that recognizes and implements EbA on a broader scale in Guatemala and India. Building on local evidence, good practices and multi-stakeholder dialogues involving key decision makers, the project will develop roadmaps that contribute to a favourable policy environment for upscaling EbA. Through the elaboration of these roadmaps, EbA measures will be prioritised and avenues for integrating EbA solutions into policy and practice will be identified. Activities undertaken will facilitate the exchange of EbA relevant impacts on the global, national and local level.

EbA Project Brochure

The project brochure provides an overview of Ecosystem-based adaptation (EbA) measures in different ecosystems and the benefit it creates at the local level. This brochure is the first communication tool as a part of the IKI project “Supporting the implementation of the Paris Agreement and the 2030 Agenda through Ecosystem-based Adaptation”, jointly developed with the partners in India and Guatemala.

This tool will be used to initiate discussions on the lessons learned at the local level. The discussions will provide a platform to bring local voices and experiences together and build evidence on how these lessons can be scaled-up into national implementation processes to synergistically achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the Intended Nationally Determined Contributions (INDCs).

Guatemala es uno de los países más vulnerables ante el cambio climático en el mundo. Es necesario buscar la forma de adaptarse a esta realidad. Una de estas formas es la Adaptación basada en Ecosistemas (AbE), que son todas las acciones que aumentan nuestra capacidad de adaptarnos a los impactos del cambio climático, utilizando la naturaleza.
