CST approach

MAP Norway was designed and is being implemented under the Climate Smart Territory (CST) approach.

A CST is a “social and geographic space where the actors collaboratively manage ecosystem services to equitably improve human well-being, continuously optimizing land use and mitigation and adaptation to climate change.”

MAP Norway tackles five of the global problems that affect the Mesoamerican region:

1) Poverty

(2) Gender inequality

(3) Food and nutritional insecurity

(4) Degradation of ecosystem services (ESs)

(5) Vulnerability to climate change

 

Through the CST approach, these problems are addressed in a systemic, multidisciplinary and multiscale manner.
