About the webinar

The countries of Latin America and the Caribbean, as signatories of the Paris Agreement, have adopted commitments to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions by the year 2030. The fulfillment of the targets established in the Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) requires significant changes in the development patterns of important sectors, such as energy, transport, agriculture, among others, which in turn implies sector commitments to reduce emissions.

In this webinar we will present the results of studies of the Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean (ECLAC), on the gaps foreseen in the fulfillment of the NDCs of the countries of the region taking into account the current course of action, and the needs to increase efforts in some sectors. The experience of Uruguay will also be presented in the search for agreements on sectoral goals for the fulfillment of its climate commitments. The webinar will be held in Spanish. If you have any questions about this event, please contact the LEDS LAC Platform Secretariat:
