No Need for Persuasion: Evidence of Mesoamerica's Changing Climate

Sustainability Series Biodiversity Outcomes

Edwin Castellanos

  • Professor; Director of Center for Environmental Studies and Biodiversity, Universidad del Valle de Guatemala

Edwin Castellanos has researched adaptation and mitigation to climate change in Guatemala for the past 20 years. He was a lead author in the IPCC 5th report on climate change for the chapter on Central and South America.

In this talk, Castellanos will discuss adaptation and mitigation efforts currently underway in Mesoamerica, with emphasis on Guatemala. The region’s efforts have been in response to highly variable and unusual climate experienced over the last two decades by different populations.

Light refreshments will be served.

We are also assisting the GPSA, USG, Council of Presidents, Aramark, Changemaker, and Sun Devil Fitness in collecting donations of school supplies and diapers for Hurricane Harvey relief. Please consider a donation.

Co-sponsored by the Center for Biodiversity Outcomes.
