The Community of Practice on Private Sector Involvement in Climate Policy Processes in Latin America is an initiative of the EUROCLIMA+ Programme, through the German Cooperation Agency GIZ, the Latin American Center for Competitiveness and Sustainable Development (CLACDS) of INCAE Business School and LEDS LAC. Its objective is to contribute to the development and consolidation of mechanisms to integrate the participation of the private sector in the formulation and implementation of climate policies with a particular focus on the Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs). To this end, it promotes the exchange of experiences and good practices, joint learning and collaboration to address common challenges, among teams from 9 countries made up of representatives of government institutions and private sector organizations that are carrying out initiatives related to this issue.
Participating countries: Argentina, Bolivia, Chile, Costa Rica, El Salvador, Honduras, Mexico, Peru and Uruguay
Furthemore, two case studies (in Spanish) have been published within the scope of the CoP on Private Sector Involvement in Climate Policy Processes:
- Chile Case Study on the Clean Production Agreements (Chile: Acuerdos de Producción Limpia), July 2019
- Colombia Case Study on the national carbon tax (Colombia: Impuesto Nacional al Carbono), May 2019
