EUROCLIMA is a regional cooperation programme between the European Union and Latin America, focused on climate change. 

The Programme's objective is to facilitate the integration of climate change mitigation and adaptation strategies and measures into Latin American public development policies and plans.

Through its actions, the Programme aims to:

- Contribute to poverty reduction of the Latin American population by reducing their environmental and social vulnerability to climate change.

- Reinforce resilience of the Latin American region to climate change and promote opportunities for green growth.

EUROCLIMA is implemented by five partners:

  1. Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean (ECLAC),
  2. Inter-American Institute for Cooperation on Agriculture (IICA),
  3. Joint Research Centre of the European Commission (JRC),
  4. United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), and
  5. The DG International Cooperation and Development of the European Commission, supported by the Technical Assistance. 

 

Through the joint work of EUROCLIMA's partners the Programme aim to achieve the following results:

1. Exchange of experiences and information on climate change in Latin America has improved, increasing political awareness and strengthening institutional capacity, knowledge and visibility of climate change at national, sub-regional and regional levels. 

2. Adaptation and mitigation measures of “no regrets” and/or with co-benefits have been identified and prioritised and implementation plans for these measures have been elaborated through pilot cases.

3. Food security has been reinforced contributing to a sustainable agriculture with a higher capacity to mitigate the effects and adapt to climate change, including desertification and soil degradation measures.
