To commemorate the World Day to Combat Desertification and Drought, the regional Andes Resilient to Climate Change project and Ecuador’s Ministry of Environment, Water and Ecological Transition (MAATE) designed a series of illustrated info graphics and posted them on MAATE’s social media to bring to the fore the importance of sustainable land management, and measures that help in adapting to climate change.
The info graphics were posted on the launch date of the National Drought Plan, which is a milestone for reaching the climate objectives of Ecuador’s Nationally Determined Contributions.
The Andes Resilient project will continue to work with MAATE on strengthening capacities and on adaptation to climate change measures in the most vulnerable Andean populations.
We share the info graphics:

Climate change accelerates land degradation processes, which in turn releases CO2 into the atmosphere, generating a vicious circle that increases the negative impacts of both global issues.

On a national scale, we have implemented 14 types of climate change adaptation and sustainable land management measures to reduce the impacts of drought, land degradation and climate change.

The implementation of sustainable land management and climate change adaptation measures allows us to respond to the fulfillment of the #NDC_Ec objectives and neutral land degradation targets.

The National Drought Plan seeks to prepare Ecuador to face drought and promote public policy tools for the comprehensive management of this phenomenon.
