Bolivia: Climate change, poverty and adaptation

Bolivia: Climate change, poverty and adaptation

Ratings: (0)|Views: 96 |Likes:
Published by Oxfam
Bolivia is a country particularly vulnerable to the impacts of climate change. In July 2009, a team of Oxfam researchers travelled to three areas of Bolivia (Trinidad in Beni, the Cochabamba valleys and Khapi under Mount Illimani, in La Paz) to take a snapshot of how poor families are experiencing the changing climate, and how they are adapting to it. Poor women and men throughout Bolivia are already experiencing the consequences of climate change, but in most cases are ill-equipped to adapt to the present and future impacts. The perception of many villagers and local farmers is that the climate is already changing in terms of the unpredictability of the rainfall, more extreme weather events and higher temperatures, with negative impacts for their livelihoods. Women are often the hardest hit.

Climate change,poverty and adaptation
We indigenous peoples will continue to talk until we achieve real change. Our voice comes from way back. Our voice is the voice of the snow-capped mountains which are losing their white ponchos.
