The puna ecosystems (peatlands, wetlands, grasslands) in the Southern High Andes of Peru are negatively impacted by climate change and unsustainable management practices. These ecosystems provide essential services such as regulating carbon and nutrients; providing fodder, food, and fiber; and supplying and regulating water. While the Andean population has demonstrated great resilience rooted in their traditional knowledge, extreme events and fluctuations in these ecosystems from increasing climate change are becoming more severe and difficult to manage.  

Resilient Puna is focused on identifying, putting into practice, and overseeing ecosystem-based adaptation (EbA) priorities aimed at improving the ownership and resources of indigenous Andean communities and local communities to strengthen their resilience to climate change. This initiative works towards enhancing the management of puna ecosystems, gathering, and sharing traditional knowledge and EbA best practices, as well as bolstering multilevel landscape governance and introducing novel mechanisms for access to public and private financing.
