COP27 Video of the Week: “Glaciers of Colombia and Ecuador”

Mountain glaciers provide an essential source of freshwater for downstream communities, particularly during the dry season. This COP27 session explored the direct and indirect consequences of glacier loss; needed emissions reductions to prevent or minimize this outcome; ways to adapt, and levels at which adaptation may not be feasible. Speakers include Dr. Heïdi Sevestre, Arctic Monitoring and Assessment Programme (AMAP); and Marcela Fernandez, founder of Cumbres Blancas Colombia.
