Brief: "Realising the Climate Economy in Latin America: a Task for Diplomacy"

Latin American policy makers emphasise the fact that development agendas need to consider climate change in a cross-cutting way. Transitioning towards a climate economy is seen as a process with a pronounced international dimension and a significant role for ministries of foreign affairs (MFAs). The discussion during the workshop demonstrated that the foreign policy tools of dialogue, integration and cooperation need to concentrate on leveraging strategic action.

The brief is also available in Spanish.
