Helen Bellfield and David Sabogal of the Global Canopy Programme look at how human needs for water, food and energy create a nexus of demands on natural resources in Amazonia and they draw lessons from the CDKN-backed Amazonia Security Agenda project. [more...]
Colombia is moderately vulnerable to climate change, but its vulnerability is set to increase between 2010 and 2030 (DARA; Climate Vulnerability Monitor, 2012). It is ranked 98th on the Human Development Index (UNDP; Human Development Index, 2014). Colombia’s CO2 emissions are 1.6 tonnes per capita, while the global average is 4.9 tonnes per capita (World Bank; World Development Indicators: Energy dependency, efficiency and carbon dioxide emissions, 2010). Colombia’s icecaps and snow-caps are fast declining, and sea levels are rising in its Caribbean coast by 3.5 mm a year.
CDKN Colombia promotes the incorporation of climate compatible development in sectors and regions that are considered priority, responding to the needs expressed by national, regional and local authorities. To achieve its objectives and to respond to national needs, CDKN has created the 'Colombian Country Program'. This program is comprised of a portfolio of projects that fosters a new vision in which climate risks are turned into opportunities for territories and sectors in the long-term.
