12:45 - 1:45

Don't miss this week's Tropilunch, with special guest Dr. Edwin Castellanos. Dr. Castellanos has done research on adaptation and mitigation to climate change in Guatemala for the past 20 years.  He was a lead author in the IPCC 5th report on climate change for the chapter on Central and South America.  

Dr. Castellanos will discuss the adaptation and mitigation efforts currently underway in Mesoamerica with an emphasis in Guatemala that results from the highly variable and unusual climate experienced in the last two decades by different population groups in the region.
