The Case Study of San Juan: Bringing Ecosystem Governance for a More Sustainable Community @ Brock University - Schmon Tower, Room 105
Jan 12 @ 11:00 am – 12:00 pm
The Andean Paramo is a fragile ecosystem that hosts high diversity and plays an important role in moderating climate and water discharge towards the amazon basin. The Chimborazo region of Ecuador is highly vulnerable to the advance of industrial/conventional agricultural activities and the changing climate, which is severely affecting water management and ecosystem health. The presentation will set the stage of a large project that involves the indigenous population of San Juan and discuss the way forward to enhance community sustainability and resilience through concepts such as ecosystem governance, ecosystem-based adaptation to climate change and landscape restoration. This seminar is hosted by the Environmental Sustainability Research Centre.
