Resumen

El manejo actual del recurso hídrico en la cuenca del Tempisque es insostenible y se predice que empeorará dadas las proyecciones de aumento de temperatura y condiciones de sequia en el futuro cercano. Describimos aquí los planes para realizar un análisis cuantitativo del suministro y la demanda del recurso hídrico en esta cuenca y  explorar, a partir de datos empíricos y de la integración de información de distintos usuarios, cómo el cambio climático podría afectar los servicios ecosistémicos en términos de disponibilidad de agua, uso del suelo y biodiversidad. De esta manera, el proyecto intenta modelar esta información para investigar cuáles acciones deben acometerse para ayudar a mantener o mejorar el suministro de agua y los servicios ecosistémicos en el futuro.
