The Wilson Center has been part of an effort to convene key stakeholders in the region and to explore promising tools in climate change adaptation through a series of seminars. Recently top experts and policymakers from those seminars in Colombia, Barbados, Dominican Republic, El Salvador, and Peru, gathered at the Center to further broaden the dialogue. Biologist and Wilson Center consultant, Carmen Lacambra, provides Context on progress and remaining challenges.
