Latin American Climate Change Adaptation Reports to be Published in Spanish

Two recent Lincoln Institute of Land policy working papers written by I2UD staff focusing on climate change adaptation in Latin American communities have been translated into Spanish. The first of these studies explores land use planning responses to climate change-driven water shortages in El Alto, Bolivia, the sister city of La Paz. The report was co-authored by Linda Shi and James Kostaras from I2UD, and Marisa Escobar and Brian Joyce from the Stockholm Environment Institute.

Alejandra Mortarini, Mona Serageldin, Carolina Morgan, Warren Hagist and local experts conducted a comprehensive study and drafted a report on local urban planning and management practices to better equip informal settlements to handle the effects of climate change in Cartagena (Colombia) and Condega (Nicaragua). After well-received presentations at the Lincoln Institute of Land Policy Research Seminar in Mexico City and the Seventh World Urban Forum in Medellin, the Lincoln Institute decided it would be valuable for the paper to be translated into Spanish. The full study, “Increasing the Resilience of Informal Settlements to Climate Change in Two Latin American Cities: Condega and Cartagena de Indias,” will be released by the Lincoln Institute later this year.
