Research highlights
  • Ecosystem-based adaptation uses ecosystem services to reduce people’s vulnerability to climate change through a multi-sectoral and multiscale approach. The TroFCCA project emphasized on the necessity of multi-stakeholder dialogues and learning.  Read more »

  • The impacts of climate change on vegetation and water cycles in Mesoamerica can be predicted and modeled with a relatively low uncertainty. Vegetation is likely to shift from humid to dry types. Runoff will decrease across the region as temperature change will increase evapotranspiration. Read more »

The TroFCCA project was designed with a two-fold objective: to understand current and future climate change impacts on forests, and to examine the role of forests for the adaptation of people. TroFCCA was implemented from March 2005 to December 2009 in selected countries of Central America, South-East Asia and West Africa. The project contributed to national processes of climate change adaptation through policy-relevant research and stakeholder dialogue. Activities were implemented together with the Tropical Agriculture Center for Research and Higher Education and the World Agroforestry Center, and were funded by the European Commission.
