Resumen: "The growing vulnerability of societies to climate change constitutes a global concern. Artisanal fishers experience extreme vulnerability due to their exposure to multiple threats with severe consequences for their families and rural communities. Given that these risks subsist despite governmental mitigation measures in the coastal zone, we used a qualitative integrative approach to analyze the vulnerability of the fishers of Barra de Frontera in the southern Gulf of Mexico and their adaptation strategies to climate change. Through a literature review and semi-structured interviews with key local actors, fishers were found to have had to constantly adapt to (1) unfavorable environmental conditions caused by periodic floods and tropical storms"
