Formal Public Consultation for the Climate Empowerment Capacity and Development Strategy in Chile

In Santiago de Chile, participatory workshops continue in dialogue with civil society to advance the validation of the ACE Strategy.

Santiago de Chile, 30 June 2022 - Last Wednesday and Thursday, 23 and 24 June, the  National Workshop with the science, research and academia sector, on the one hand, and the Regional workshop for the metropolitan area  were held in the framework of the participatory process for the public consultation of the Climate Empowerment Capacity and Development Strategy in Chile. The national workshop took place at UTEM (Technological University of Santiago de Chile) while the regional workshop was held at the Centro Cultural Gabriela Mistral, also in Santiago de Chile.

The activity was organised by the Chilean Ministry of Environment and supported by the EUROCLIMA+ programme, through the International and Ibero-America Foundation for Administration and Public Policy (FIIAPP) and facilitated by APCA. Both workshops are part of a broader process that ends on 10 August, which aims to validate and legitimise the current strategy in conversation with civil society.

Formal public consultation in Chile is part of the country's participatory culture that aims to place citizens in the centre of inputs and reflections to drive Chile's public policy. For the Climate Empowerment Capacity and Development Strategy, in addition to having web support where recommendations can be made, a broad participatory process has also been incorporated with 60 days of implementation, which will develop 20 workshops in total in different modalities: hybrid (face-to-face and virtual) and eminently face-to-face workshops to be held in different regions of the country.

FIIAPP, as an implementing agency of the Euroclima+ programme, is accompanying the design and preparation of the Strategy, together with the participatory process in the framework of the Action for Climate Empowerment line developed by the programme.

During the workshops held on 23 and 24 June, it was possible to count on the participation of specialists in the field as panelists such as Óscar Mercado Muñoz from the Universidad Tecnológica Metropolitana, and Yayo Herrero, expert in ACE and consultant for FIIAPP in the EUROCLIMA+ programme, as well as the participation of Sonia Reyes Packe from the SEREMI of the Metropolitan Area of Santiago de Chile. At the same time, it has been possible to carry out group work with the attendees, in order to collect contributions and recommendations that will be incorporated into the final document of the ACE Strategy in Chile.

The group work and dialogue spaces have been able to facilitate a better understanding of the progress and challenges of the strategy, as well as to discuss and analyse what direction it should take to ensure effective ownership in its implementation.


EUROCLIMA+ is a programme funded by the European Union to promote environmentally sustainable and climate-resilient development in 18 Latin American countries, in particular for the benefit of the most vulnerable populations. The Programme is implemented under the synergistic work of seven 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) GmbH, Expertise France (EF), the International and Ibero-America Foundation for Administration and Public Policy (FIIAPP), and UN Environment.
