Strengthening Local Capacity for Climate Change Adaptation in the Hualgayoc high-Andes Ecosystems strengthens local government capacity to design and implement climate change adaptation plans and policies and strengthens capacity for integrated management of the Hualgayoc and Tingo-Maygasbamba watersheds.

Generate tools to help the population adapt to climate change, through the formulation of public investment projects using a Climate Smart Territory (CST) approach to protect mountain water resources, improve the livelihoods of the communities and reduce the risks caused by external weather events.

Strengthen partnerships among academic institutions, regional and local governments, as well as the farming communities to address the challenges of adaptation to climate change and developing resilience in the Junín Region.
