Peru & Brazil

Disruptive weather phenomena like El Niño have the power to jeopardize food and water security as basis a resilient development on a national, regional and local level. Cross-sectoral planning based on seasonal forecasts is vital to harmonize adaptation and mitigation options for a higher resilience towards climate variability in the future.

Our Work in the Region

Seasonal forecasts and modelling trends in regional climate help to assess the impacts of disruptive weather phenomena on a national, regional and community level. Robust and sector-tailored scenario modelling enables sustainable planning. This capacity building through reciprocal knowledge exchange outlines the ground for assessing climate risks on water resources and agricultural production and helps understanding climate induced migration patterns for a higher resilience towards regional climate variability.
