>>>NEWS: Latin America and Caribbean Climate Week seeks to Galvanize Regional Climate Action

Latin America & Caribbean Climate Week 2018 is designed to advance regional climate action. The ultimate aim of the Climate Week is to support implementation of countries’ Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) under the Paris Agreement and climate action to deliver on the UN Sustainable Development Goals.

The Climate Week will be an umbrella for a series of climate-related events focused on NDC implementation – Challenges and opportunities, the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, and Global Climate Action.

With Latin America Carbon Forum a cornerstone event, focus will be placed on market-based approaches, economic instruments and climate-aligned finance to drive investment in climate action.

If you are planning a climate-related event in Latin America, consider holding it in Montevideo during Climate Week.

Join us at Climate Week!
