The Climate Vulnerability, Impact and Adaptation Network (CliVIA-Net) perform higher education and state-of-the art research on matters related to climate change adaptation (CCA), climate variability adaptation (CVA), Ecosystem-based adaptation (EBA) and climate risk-management (CRM) on coastal areas, ecosystems, water resources, well-being and Eco-health in Bolivia, Paraguay, Uruguay and Venezuela.
Our network is a university-based education and research effort from across the spectrum of the natural and social sciences, engineering, geography and health.
Many universities around the world are conducting studies and technical research on issues related to climate change, both mitigation and adaptation.
However, as evidenced by the recent 21st Conference of the Parties to the UN Convention on Climate Change (COP 21) held in Paris in December 2015, there is much room for improvement in relation to the role of universities in the negotiations and influence decision-making on this issue of global importance.
The researchers involved are the field of climate change in the broader sense, not only of the knowledge of traditional ambiance, but also the fields of environment, economy, administration and media studies.
