Although the landscape of Lomas is part of a green chain from the north of Peru to the north of Chile, over time, this landscape has been losing territory turning into small islands because of natural factors and urban development issues. After the establishment of the Metropolitan Environmental Policy in 2012 and the Metropolitan Environmental Agenda 2018-2019, the Metropolitan Municipality of Lima (MML) has started the experience of climate-oriented policies to support the transition from mitigation to adaptation in local planning by protecting the Loma ecosystems. In late 2019, Lima’s Lomas System Regional Conservation Area, a proposal developed by the MML with the technical support of national and international organizations, has been approved by the national government. In an attempt to reflect climate risk management and adaptation, the research focuses on the integration of EbA in Lomas Ecosystems into Plans and Policies by considering management approaches and drivers of vulnerability. This by linking adaptation design to local urban planning systems to increase resilience in the Metropolitan Area of Lima. The research concludes that although it is a breakthrough for the city with some gaps to be clarified, Lomas Ecosystems within its environmental, social, and economical factors should take place inside the landscape approach. Lomas Ecosystems are a potential network of open spaces that can become the transition between the city and nature to strengthen climate change adaptation.
