MORA, Katherinne. Thinking about the past in order to adapt to climate change. The necessary contribution from Latin American environmental history. Letras Verdes [online]. 2018, n.24, pp.8-26.  Epub 01-Sep-2018. ISSN 1390-6631.

This article highlights how important is the participation of history in the design of adaptive strategies for the present and future. Also, it does a balance about some reflections on adaptation to climate change in historical perspective, mainly from the Anglo-Saxon academic world, but with some exceptions from Latin America. The article is an invitation to go beyond the stories of conjuncture and failures, to reconstruct medium and long-term visions about the relationship between climate and society, which include the cases in which the result was not fateful. Finally, it indicates some tasks and methodologies for research agendas of environmental historians in Latin America.

Palabras clave : adaptation; climate change; climate history; environmental histoty; Latin America.
