In this section, the lessons that have been capitalized by the various actors participating in the project actions are presented. These have been surveyed through the interviews of the evaluation process. This is not intended to be an exhaustive list of learnings, but to note those that may be more significant for future interventions around the implementation of adaptation and mitigation actions to climate change.

  1. At the community level, it may be more useful for communities to assimilate "adaptation and mitigation to climate change" through specific actions on the issue (for example, adaptation measures such as water harvesting, soil improvement, etc.), allowing them to relate the problem to their daily lives and to assimilate the tools through practical activities (learning by doing). At the time of the evaluation, a group from a Nicaraguan organization was visiting a group, becoming familiar with the practices implemented by the project.
  2. Sometimes, local processes generate advances that serve as a reference for the national level and enrich it.[1] 
  3. To favor the alliances between the diverse actors linked to the subject, including the promotion of joint actions between scientific institutions, academia, community organizations, private sector, government.
  4. The evaluation made it possible to observe, as a lesson learned, that project design is effective and efficient when the pertinent adjustments are made in order to act synergistically and jointly as required by the nature of the project itself. The highly complex and vulnerable areas require that international cooperation and institutions work with a multidimensional approach to comprehensively focus on the issues addressed. Intervention in the watersheds of the Nahualá River requires joint operations, for meeting problems of poverty, ethnicity, social and political.
