"Strengthening actions , climbing answers"

For sustainable improvement in the lives of rural Andean populations to a changing climate.

The strategies of PACC's second phase:

The emphasis of the second phase of the PACC will promote sustainability of scaling and adaptive responses. The systems approach provides strategic analysis criteria and guidelines for intervention in the same perspective. The strategies proposed for the second phase are:

1. "Maintaining Progress"

The continuity of the achieved progress in climate change adaptation management in Cusco and Apurimac is a challenge for regional and local governments as well as for PACC's partners.
PACC II provides technical assistance and follow-up to regional and local stakeholders in Cusco and Apurimac.

2. "Up-scaling Responses"

A second challenge is the up scaling and replication of good practices and policies that increase adaptive capacities of the rural Andean population in key topics such as water and agriculture; based on the intervention of competent national stakeholders.
PACC II seeks to generate "solid evidences" based on relevant adaptive responses for the rural Andean population.
PACC II promotes the dissemination of learning, the dialogue among stakeholders and policy influence for up scaling.

3. "Clear up Bottlenecks"

PACC's partners (regional and local governments, central governmental bodies and universities) have the challenge to clear up the bottlenecks that limit the accomplishment of their roles and responsibilities:

  • The effective implementation of public policies on adaptation.
  • The expansion of farmers' good practices fostering adaptation.
  • Applied research on topics related to climate change.
  • Capacity building based on society needs to cope with a changing climate.

4. "Flexible Intervention"

To meet the institutional and territorial dynamics and the changes occurring in the context.

5. "Dialogue and Partnership with Multiple Stakeholders"

To amplify the influence of public decision makers, prioritizing partnerships with municipal, academic and practitioners' networks.

6. "A two-way dynamic"

A. Bottom-up:
With local and regional stakeholders; so that their experiences and learning are made available to bodies with up scaling capacities.

B. Top-down:
With national stakeholders; so that their decisions have an effect in terms of dissemination and promotion of local adaptation.

7. "Knowledge Management to produce Evidence"

Based on effective adaptation practices with impacts on rural livelihoods to influence public policies.

8. "Social and gender equity"

Women and children vulnerability increases with climate change. It is mandatory to promote an equitable access to knowledge, resources and technology to increase their adaptive capacities.
