Getting to Net-Zero Emissions: Lessons from Latin America and the Caribbean

9am, December 05th, 2019

On the sidelines of the UN Climate Change Conference (COP25) under the Chilean Presidency in Madrid,  the flagship report “Getting to Net-Zero Emissions: Lessons from Latin America and the Caribbean” was launched.

The report by the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) shows that achieving net-zero emissions is not only necessary to reach the Paris Agreement goals, but it is also technically possible and can bring multiple economic benefits to the region.

The publication is a key output of the Deep Carbonization Pathways in Latin America and the Caribbean (DDPLAC), which supports academia and think tanks in six countries (Argentina, Colombia, Costa Rica, Ecuador, Peru and Mexico) to develop decarbonisation pathways. The project is led by IDB, in partnership with the 2050 Pathways Platform and the French Development Agency, with technical coordination provided by the Institute for Sustainable Development and International Relations (IDDRI).
