Latin America and Caribbean Climate Week
Latin America Investment Facility (LAIF) will be participating in the ‘Latin America and Caribbean Climate Week’ (LACCW 2019) that will be held in Salvador de Bahia, Brazil, from August 19 to 23, 2019.
This regional event brings together policymakers and other local, national, regional and global stakeholders, to learn and exchange knowledge and best practices for the implementation of national climate plans, the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, and global climate action. Participants will be able to assess, jointly plan or create new climate action initiatives. This year, the various Regional Climate Weeks serve as critical stepping stones to the UN Climate Summit 2019, convened by UN Secretary-General António Guterres for September.
