Colombia Adaptation to Climate Impacts in Water Regulation and Supply Area of Chingaza

The project will support the implementation of adaptation measures designed to address the consequences of climate change in the water supply and hydrological regulation functions provided by high-mountain wetlands and ecosystems of the Chingaza-Sumapaz-Guerrero corridor. These ecosystems and wetlands are the main drinking water source to the Bogota metropolitan area and its adjoining rural communities. The natural water regulation function of these ecosystems is expected to be seriously affected by changes in the intensification of the water cycle.
