How green investment will help Latin America and the world fight climate change
01/08/2020 Since 1 year
Climate change is having a dramatic effect on Latin America and the Caribbean.
Most people in the region view climate change as a major peril.
Costa Rica, Chile and 21 regional countries have announced plans to become “net-zero” emitters by 2050.
Protests have rattled governments across Latin America and the Caribbean in recent months as people demand higher wages and lower levels of inequality.
Does that mean protesters no longer care about long-term challenges like climate change? Absolutely not. Polls consistently show that people fear climate change far more than do people in other regions.
