About the webinar

There is a gap between available financial resources to implement climate actions and their actual use by Latin American countries. The dispersion of information on relevant funds is one of the challenges that countries must overcome in order to improve access to climate finance.

The webinar presents a guide for Latin American countries with detailed information on international funding initiatives. The study “Climate Finance and NDCs in Latin America: A Guide to Facilitate Access to International Funding Initiatives” will soon be published as nr. 10 of a series of Thematic Studies by EUROCLIMA’s Technical Assistance. It provides relevant data on 25 of the most important funds active in Latin America. By facilitating access to funding initiatives, the guide supports the implementation of climate actions in the framework of the NDCs. An infographic on key findings is available online:

The webinar will be held in Spanish. If you have any questions about this event, please contact the Secretariat of the LEDS LAC Platform:
