Sauchyn Upegui Masiokas-2016-Exposure of rural communities to climate variability and change case studies from Argentina Colombia and Canada

This paper presents results from studies of exposure to climate change
and extreme events in the Mendoza River Basin in western Argentina, the
Chinchina´ River basin in the Colombian Andes, and the Oldman River basin and
Swift Current Creek watershed in the Canadian Prairies. These case studies are a
major component of an international research project: “Vulnerability and Adaptation to Climate Extremes in the Americas” (VACEA). This project is very much
interdisciplinary; with social and natural science providing context and direction for
research in the other realm of scholarship, producing insights that very likely would
not arise from a more narrow disciplinary perspective.
