Résumé
Climate change is going to promote the dry and wet cycle’s intensification. This document tends to study the way how people deal with dry seasons in the community of Tucaque. Droughts limit the economic and human development. Even more if there are obstacles that retain the adaptative capacity to this event. These barriers are the economic resources scarcity and ; social and institutional factors. The latter two are seen in Tucaque where individualism dominates its social life, where there is weak governance, and weak connections with Frías Municipality do not allow the right management of dry seasons. Droughts will continue happening so it is not enough to just point the hindrances of confronting them but it is a good idea to search the opportunities that can be used in order to take advantage of them as the Canal El Bronce, that is reducing drought effects ; the Ronda Campesina de Tucaque, despite its difficulties it is a very respected and organized institution in the community ; ethnoclimatic knowledge, that can be revalorated and ; the pitaya farming, which does not consume much water for its growth and it is a product with big economic possibilities. Being the agriculture a very sensitive activity to modifications of climate variability, actions taken against droughts will perfectly fit in adaptation measures to climate change.
