Resumen

URIBE RIVERA, David; VERA BURGOS, Carolina; PAICHO, Maritza  y  ESPINOZA, Guillermo. ECO-SOCIAL OBSERVATORY FOR THE MONITORING OF CLIMATE CHANGE IN HIGH WETLANDS IN THE TARAPACÁ REGION: PROPOSALS, PROGRESS AND PROJECTIONS. Diálogo Andino [online]. 2017, n.54, pp.63-82. ISSN 0719-2681.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0719-26812017000300063.

Biological and social systems from the Puna ecoregions are considered one of the most vulnerable to climate change. However there is poor understanding about the way that these systems would be impacted by future climatic change on a regional scale. In this context, the need of a multidisciplinary approach in the climate change effects assessment arises as imperative. The design and implementation of the Eco-social Observatory of Climate Change Effects for High Altitude Wetlands of Tarapacá Region is presented here. Since 2013, the Observatory has been gradually implemented by the Centro de Estudios de Humedales in four high altitude wetlands from northern Chile, including two salt lakes and associated springs (Salar del Huasco: 20° 18’ S-68° 50’ W, 3800 masl; and Laguna Lagunillas: 19° 56’ S-68° 51’ W, 4100 masl), one high altitude fertile plaine (Copaquire: 20° 55’S-68° 53’ W, 3,500 masl), and one ravine wetland (Iquiuca-Parca: 20° 01’ S-69° 13’ W, 2,500 masl). The Observatory is monitoring variables of the physical, biotic and social components of the environment, integrating different sources of knowledge from natural and social sciences. The understanding of climate change effects on natural and social systems will help to generate better predictions of their effects, providing new tools to design more efficient adaptation strategies in face of future climate change.
