Ecotourism & Climate Readiness Presentation in Scotland
Ginger presented her dissertation research on building climate readiness within an ecotourism business owned and operated by the indigenous communities of the Pueblos Mancomunados (located in the Sierra Norte mountains of Oaxaca, Mexico).
The presentation was in a session on the first day and stimulated much discussion throughout the days that followed (session title: Science-driven, Community-Based Approaches for Enhanced Climate Change Adaptation Capacity).
Erin participated in a conference field trip to Corrie Fee, a National Nature Reserve, to better understand how lands are co-managed by Scottish Natural Heritage and Cairngorms National Park. After the conference, Erin and Ginger spent a day hiking in Cairngorms National Park.
