Temperature can rise 2.7 degrees in Ecuador until 2070

Ecuadorian experts warned about the possibility, which they attributed to climate change that is already being felt in the country and in the world.

Ecuadorian experts warned of an increase of about 2.7 degrees Celsius in the temperature of the country in the medium term, between 2040 and 2070, caused by the climate change.

“The presence of climate change it is real, we live it and in the future it will be exacerbated,” said Bolívar Erazo, executive director of the National Institute of Meteorology and Hydrology (Inamhi), during a virtual meeting organized by the Ministry of the Environment.

According to Erazo, who was speaking before a group of professors and other officials, in the distant future, that is, between 2070 and 2100, the ambient temperature is expected to rise by 4.4 degrees Celsius in our country.

As for the rainfallforesaw an increase of 8% in the medium term, which will cause other problems due to the increase in water, and 17% in the long term.

And he insisted on his appearance in actions to respond adequately to the natural phenomena to come, including the creation of an early warning system “to be prepared in the management of these changes in the amount of water.”

In September, the Ministry of the Environment launched the National Plan for the Transition to Decarbonization, which seeks to generate alternatives in the management of long-term climate change in the different sectors of the national territory.

According to the United Nations Development Program (UNDP), in Ecuador 40% of the glaciers have been lost in the last 30 years and two of the seven glacier covers are at “imminent risk” due to climate change.

For Karina Barrera, undersecretary of Climate changeit is a phenomenon that is no longer a cliché and to counteract its effects it is necessary to work on education because “we all do our part”.

Liliana Troncoso, an academic from the Central University, referred to the alluvium that affected the sectors of La Comuna and La Gasca, in the north center of Quito, last week, assuring that it could be the effect of the climate changein which there is also some kind of human responsibility.

“Humans have to recognize their position as hosts” in the environment that surrounds us and must “find ways to incorporate prevention, preparation, mitigation, education and public policy measures” in order to achieve adequate coexistence with the territory, he recommended in his intervention. EFE
