Peru Climate Change Vulnerability and Adaptation Desktop Study

This document describes and analyzes the variety of climate change risks for the different climactic regions of Peru including the Huasta reigon. It discusses the progress of climate change and how it is impacting NWP in the region and what steps have been make to try to mitigate the impact. It demonstrates how the climate change is affecting Nature which in turn hurts Wealth. It also sheds light on the fact that Power is the a major anvenue for dealing with climate change, but empowering local communities enough to influence national policies is difficult. Additionally, it shows how a NWP solution for climate change is difficult because the scope of the impact of climate chage is very different depending on the climactic region and policy makers will be hard pressed to find solutions that work in each region without negative ramifications in other regions.
