A new report from Latimpacto in Latin America seeks to connect and advance climate action and conservation from the perspective of private financial support in Latin America and the Caribbean.
The changing climate is a threat to the well-being of humanity and the health of the planet, with a report from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change this year stating that to ‘avoid further loss of life, biodiversity, and infrastructure, ambitious action on climate change adaptation must be taken as a matter of urgency to achieve rapid and pronounced reductions in greenhouse gas emissions.’
Latimpacto hopes that its report will encourage its partners in Latin America to understand how positive and sustainable change is being generated through the use of different impact strategies, such as donations, more risk-tolerant investments and innovative financial mechanisms.
‘At Latimpacto we want to increase knowledge of successful experiences in terms of socio-environmental investment that lead to new reflections, and opportunities for improvement and thus promote effective learning and collaboration. We are sure that this report, like all our publications, will be the beginning of a greater articulation among the stakeholders interested in taking a definitive step towards supporting these causes to generate impact and transformation in climate action and conservation,’ said María Carolina Suárez Visbal, Latimpacto CEO.
