The Chilean Ministry of the Environment, supported by the European Union's cooperation programme, EUROCLIMA+, is organising a meeting to share progress in climate policy monitoring.


Santiago de Chile, July 31, 2018 - Sponsored by the Ministry of the Environment of Chile, and under the framework of the action “Strengthening monitoring and evaluation systems for climate policies of the Transparency Framework of the Paris Agreement and the 2030 Agenda” that the EUROCLIMA+ programme is promoting in the region, an exchange workshop for officials from Chile, El Salvador, Uruguay and Costa Rica was held to present their situations and progress with respect to the monitoring of climate policies.

At this meeting, the countries presented to their counterparts their situation and progress to date; so that those who have processes under review on climate policy monitoring can take advantage of the knowledge generated in other countries, replicating the successful points and adapting the approach to the reality of their country.

During the workshop sessions, common challenges were identified, such as the need to develop a culture of measurement, the importance of establishing data verification procedures or working on the decentralisation of M&E from the climate policies.

The meeting also served to share opportunities and common interests, such as the development of energy adaptation plans, the possibility of having an analysis of the impact of CC impact on the sectors, with a mapping of effects, or to share experiences on mitigation.


EUROCLIMA+ is a programme financed by the European Union, aimed at supporting the implementation of the commitments of the Paris Agreement, especially the nationally determined contributions in 18 Latin American countries, and with this, promoting environmentally sustainable and climate-resilient development for the benefit of the most vulnerable populations. EUROCLIMA+ is implemented through the synergistic work of seven international cooperation agencies: the Spanish Agency for International Development Cooperation (AECID), the French Development Agency (AFD), the Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean (ECLAC), the German society for International Cooperation (GIZ), Expertise France (EF), the International and Ibero-American Foundation for Administration and Public Policy (FIIAPP), and UN Environment.
