I2UD Promotes Resilience to Climate Change in Latin America
Research Trip to Condega and Cartagena
Alejandra Mortarini and Carolina Morgan conducted research trips to cities in Nicaragua and Colombia to further their study of urban adaptation to climate change. They met with local partners and met with community members and local officials, putting their research into action. “In both cities, the challenge is not only an environmental one, but an urban planning one: at the core of the problem is the unavailability of affordable urban land, which forces low income groups to settle in the riskiest areas,” says Morgan, in an in-depth piece on their trip.
