clchta1Tierramerica presents the First Regional Report on Climate Change

With only days to go before the Fifteenth Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change is held in Copenhagen, the forecasts are not very encouraging.

This first report on climate change in Latin America is prompted by the conviction that the issue has been firmly placed on the global agenda, and therefore on the agenda of the media, and will demand ongoing, alert and close attention.

It is part of a larger effort by Tierramerica to periodically consult with experts, scientists and authorities, and representatives of civil society and international bodies to analyse the state of climate change in the region, assessing the gains and setbacks that have occurred either through action or omission.

Tierramerica is the most important regional communications platform for Sustainable Human Development and Environment in Latin America. It is a joint project of the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and The World Bank (WB), with IPS serving as the executive agency.
