ECLAC to host Expert Group Meeting on the Economic Impacts of Climate Change in Latin America and the Caribbean

The initiative “Understanding the Potential Economic Impacts of Climate Change in Latin America and the Caribbean”, which is being implemented by the Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean (ECLAC) Subregional Headquarters for the Caribbean, seeks to determine and cost the economic impacts of climate change in Latin America and the Caribbean.

To date, the project has realized an analysis of climatic modelling for the Caribbean subregion. Additionally, economic assessments of the impacts of climate change on the macroeconomy as well as the tourism and water sectors in the subregion have been determined. These results will be used to inform and strengthen national climate change policy documents in select Caribbean countries.

In order to provide a forum for discussion of the results of these reports within the context of strengthening draft national climate change policy documents, ECLAC will be convening a meeting on Thursday 30 June 2011 at the Subregional Headquarters for the Caribbean Port of Spain.
