Ruiz-Mallén, I., Corbera, E., Novkovic, A., Calvo-Boyero, D. and Reyes-García, V. 2013 'Adapting to environmental change in Latin America: Planning the future from the bottom up' COMBIOSERVE European Policy brief. This briefing reviews adaptation strategies in Latin America and highlights the extent to which such strategies consider multiple stressors and incorporate scenarios as a tool for policy design. It outlines the policy implications of the on-going COMBIOSERVE research based on the role of bottom-up scenario development exercises in devising context specific policy programs that could contribute to reduce vulnerability and enhance adaptive capacity in rural contexts.
Ruiz-Mallén, I., Corbera, E. and Reyes-García, V., 2012. 'Resilience in Biocultural Community-based Conservation: Coping with Global Environmental Change' COMBIOSERVE European Policy Brief. This briefing outlines the policy implications of the COMBIOSERVE research by making explicit the policy-related connections between community-based conservation and resilience of socio-ecological systems, and by summarising the different national approaches towards community conservation in Bolivia, Brazil and Mexico. Taking climate change and related adaptation mechanisms as a focus, it makes a series of recommendations for the creation of successful climate change adaptation strategies through bottom-up, participatory conservation approaches.
