Title of Challenge
INNOVATIVE SOLUTIONS TO REDUCE EFFECTS ENSO AND THE REST OF EXTREM EVENTS OF CLIMATE VARIABILITY IN BOGOTA
Description of city challenge
In this century, the city of Bogotá has been and will continue highly affected by the climate change effects, especially, by presence of increasingly intense and frequent extreme weather events. The latest manifestation of El Niño phenomenon took place during 2015 and the first semester of this year 2016. El Niño ENSO left massive impacts in productive sectors and in the local economy, especially in the agriculture, energy and drinking water sectors.

Due to the affectation in the Chingaza Páramo ecosystem that provides drinking water to Bogotá and keeps the reservoirs of the rest of the region, the prices of potable water and energy services reached levels never before imagined, even the prices of the human food supply. Further, in this climate event, the city exceeded the maximum limit of air pollutants concentration, allowing the increased of respiratory diseases in the population, especially in January, February and March 2016 that are dry periods. La Niña 2010-2011 and La Niña 2011- 2012 caused the greatest floods events ever in the most important rivers and watersheds of the city, and affectations due to the landslides in the major vulnerable communities from Bogota. Another big impact that took place was blockages in the sewerage system and affectations in the road system of the city.

Therefore to continue with this life style we must be aware of this big problem and start with our own strategy to mitigate the Green House Gas – GHG and adapt adequately the current economic and domestic activities to reduce the exposure and face the increased intensity and frequency of these climatic extreme events, and whose effects and risks remain in homes, roads, crops and goods, and on strategic ecosystems and in the local, regional and national economy scale that remain highly vulnerable and exposure, especially in the economic sectors as agricultural, livestock, road sectors, housing, health, education and finance.
