CRiSTAL Stories: CRiSTAL Supports Climate-Resilient Development in the Peruvian Andes

Marius Keller, Tatiana Farfán de la Vega
In this CRiSTAL Stories brief, Marius Keller and Tatiana Farfán de la Vega document how the application of the Community-Based Risk Screening Tool - Adaptation and Livelihoods (CRiSTAL) framework in the municipality of Santa Teresa, in the Cusco region of Peru, led to identification by the local communities of a range of climate and gender-sensitive adaptation measures, in line with their local culture and traditions. Continuous engagement of local government in the CRiSTAL process further contributed to the inclusion of climate adaptation into local development plans, which is now being replicated in the surrounding municipalities.
