Latin America and Caribbean Climate Week 2020

Latin America and Caribbean (LAC) Climate Week 2020 will bring together representatives from the public and private sectors to exchange ideas and identify synergies in discussions, meetings and exhibitions on a diverse set of themes related to climate action and sustainable development. Taking place in 2020, the year when countries are expected to increase the ambition of their Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) under the Paris Agreement on climate change, the event, hosted by the Government of the Dominican Republic, will seek to facilitate NDC implementation and help deliver on the SDGs. Among other goals, the event will seek to strengthen resilience to climate change at the regional level, especially in the Caribbean island States.

Latin America and Caribbean Climate Week is one of four Regional Climate Weeks to convene in 2020, alongside Africa Climate Week, MENA Climate Week and Asia-Pacific Climate Week. Regional Climate Weeks are organized by the Nairobi Framework Partnership (NFP), which supports developing countries in preparing and implementing their NDCs.

The 2020 events will build on the success of the 2019 Regional Climate Weeks in: Accra, GhanaSalvador, Brazil; and Bangkok, Thailand.  

We will update this page as more information becomes available.
