What does it do?
The Environmental Modeling Laboratory (LMA) in a unit of CATIE’s Climate Change and Watersheds Program (PCCC) that supports the organizational mission through research and technical assistance on the effect of global change on agriculture, ecosystems, services these provide and the implications for society.
The objective of the LMA is to support the planning, decision-making and management of integrated actions for mitigation and adaptation to climate change, its variability and land use, connecting research with regional, national and local processes through technical assistance to government, non-governmental, community and private organizations. This objective is based on the generation and analysis of data, the use of biophysical and socioeconomic modeling tools and continuous interaction with the organizations it assists and other working groups.
