If you’re coming to Chile this year from December 2 to 13, the attention of the entire world will be on Chile, and it’s because the high representatives of 197 countries will be participating in the world’s most important convention on climate change, as the organizer and host of this grand event.
The main objective of the United Nation’s Conference of the Parties (COP) is to promote active policies that seek to care for and protect the planet. The event in Chile’s capital will also seek to establish criteria for compliance with the Paris Agreement and improve emission and waste reduction goals of the participating countries.
In this year’s planetary meeting, the Chilean Government has proposed to include discussions regarding the care of oceans and the Antarctica. Also on the agenda, will be topics such as electro-mobility, renewable energy, promoting a circular economy and the protection of ecosystems, forests and biodiversity.
It’s worth mentioning that Chile has between seven and nine conditions of climate change vulnerability making it extremely delicate in relation to nature and natural resources.
High government officials refer to this event as a historic challenge for global climate action and will be the biggest international event that Chile has organized since the World Cup in 1962.
