Final Technical Report : building resilience in Cartagena Bay : BASIC Cartagena resilient
The short title of the project is ‘BASIC Cartagena Resilient.’ The report summarizes the second phase of the BASIC project, covering research findings and milestones regarding coastal zones and their vulnerable populations: current rate of sea-level rise; issues of public health in communities; economic valuations of ecosystem services; hypoxic conditions inhibiting the bay’s ecosystem; sanitary conditions inadequate for touristic recreation; and metal concentrations above internationally recommended limits found in the bay’s sediments, fish and human populations (Annex 1.4). Capacity building was achieved in the communities through public education aimed at generating awareness for water management practices.
