Research focus


The project aims to understand Costa Rica’s water-related challenges in vulnerable communities and to identify and test adaptation options for coping with water scarcity. We will focus on understanding the biophysical and socio-economical dynamics of both case studies to then test and assess the feasibility for implementing robust adaptation measures. Specifically, the project will address two particular challenges:

Island communities

Water scarcity in Pacific insular communities

Brasilito beach, Costa Rica

Coastal communities

Saltwater intrusion in coastal aquifers
