As part of the hub of program results, various products and services generated during the first phase, presented below:

A. Knowing vulnerabilities


14 local researches in micro-watersheds: Huacrahuacho -Cusco and Mollebamba - Apurimac (seven in each watershed). The topics discussed were:

  • Water supply
  • Water demand
  • Water management and conflict
  • Rural production systems
  • Production typologies
  • Cultural systems
  • Disaster risk

20 studies on the Apurimac and Cusco regions scope (10 studies of bi-regional scope and 10 of regional scope). The topics discussed were:
  • Weather characterization
  • Climate scenarios for 2030 and 2050
  • Current and future surface water availability in large basins
  • Current and future water demand
  • Water management and conflicts
  • Productive and cultural systems
  • Agroclimatological characterization and impacts of climate change on crops
  • Disaster risk (analysis of extreme events and spatiotemporal analysis)
  • Socioeconomic scenarios

4 Integrated Diagnoses on Vulnerability and Adaptation to climate variability and change:
  • 2 locally (Huacrahuacho and Mollebamba micro-watersheds)
  • 2 of regional scope (Cusco and Apurimac)

Temporary incentive fund for applied research on effects and impacts of climate change with the National University San Antonio Abad of Cusco:
  • In 2013, teacher researchers conducting four researches related to climate change in UNSAAC, received stimuli for internships and training that allow to strengthen their research capabilities.

B. Monitoring and reporting


  • In 2011, two regional information systems for adaptation to climate change (SIACC) were built and tested as subsystems of the Regional Environmental Information System (SIAR) of Apurimac and Cusco.
  • In 2013, the Regional Environmental Information System (SIAR) of Apurimac and Cusco assimilated the SIACC, integrating their platform, their documentary, cartographic and web services linked to SENAMHI database modules.
  • 35 institutions (24 in Cusco and 11 in Apurimac) credited in operation.

C. Performing


  • 4 cycles of peasants contests "Apu Ritti Raymi" performed in concert with local authorities and community leaders in Mollebamba and Huacrahuacho micro-watersheds.
  • 2 cycles of water planting and harvesting contests "Ununchista Uywasun" on Huacrahuacho micro-watershed Cusco- and "Yacunchista Uywasun" on Mollebamba-Apurimac- micro-watershed.
  • Two contests "Pachamamapi Sumaq Kawsay" on climate change adaptation in the school and community, implemented in 12 schools in the district of Juan Espinoza Medrano. Mollebamba micro-watershed.
  • 36 community development plans incorporate the issue of climate change in their diagnosis and adaptation actions and projects (18 in Checca District, 13 in Kunturkanki and 5 in Juan Espinoza Medrano).
  • 2 concerted regional development plans - PEDRC (Apurimac and Cusco) and 3 local development concerted plans - PDLC (districts: Juan Espinoza Medrano, Kunturkanki and Checca) incorporate climate change management.

D. Learn to Influence


  • Communication campaign and incidence. And your candidate, does he already talk about climate change? Under the 2010 electoral process in Apurimac, Cusco and Metropolitan Lima to incorporate ACC proposals in their plans of government:
    - 9 candidates in Cusco for regional presidents incorporated proposals for action against climate change in their plans of government and signed the "Agreement for Cusco 2014", with ACC and RDD targets.
    - 11 candidates (all) for Apurimac regional presidents signed the "governance pact" which includes policy guidelines on CC.
    - 4 out of 12 candidates for Mayors in Lima reported publicly proposals to address CC in the province of Lima and signed the "Climate Agreement."
  • Broadcasting and sensitizing campaign around key research findings on the effects and impacts of climate change in Apurimac and Cusco.
    * In Apurimac and Cusco was carried out the campaign "Climate is changing, it is time to change", broadcasted through radio, television and print media and public presentations. The campaign had as its central character the figure of the Inca.
  • 1 post graduate Diploma in Science and Climate Change Management given for 3 consecutive years by The National University of San Antonio Abad of Cusco (UNSACC) in partnership with the National Agrarian University Molina (UNALM), the Major National University of San Marcos (UNMSM) and the University of Zurich.
  • 1 university degree in Public Management and Climate Change taught by University of St. Martin de Porres (USMP)
