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:
(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.
