The analysis allowed us to create alternatives for the management of the territory. Here, a participatory commitment was generated with the communities, in order to understand the main vulnerabilities of protected areas to climate change. We use tools, such as the Analysis of Social Vulnerability to Climate Impacts at the local level within protected areas of the CONANP (National Commission of Protected Natural Areas). This tool helped to identify the level of access or control over natural resources and the collective capacity of the inhabitants to adapt to adverse changes.

Enabling factors

- Active participation and collaboration with the community

- Technical support from experts in social approaches, livestock and natural resource management

- Willingness of the community to form a work team and form resource management committees which were granted authority to act on behalf of the community

-Ability to identify the needs, vulnerabilities and capacities of women from the beginning of the project and thus to be able to integrate them into the design, management, implementation and evaluation of projects 

Lessons learned

- We must motivate people to obtain changes in their development processes.

- Planning under a holistic approach helps decision makers to reduce the risks caused by livestock activities.

- Empowering women herders strengthens the livelihoods of mountain communities

- Working under a social inclusion approach helps people to benefit from the advantages of teamwork, to strengthen their social network and improve their coexistence in communities.
