Background: LACCW 2022 brings together regional stakeholders with the potential to shift the needle on the climate challenge. The event opens space for governments, private sector leaders, development organizations, youth and civil society to join solution-oriented dialogues, find common ground and forge partnerships for climate action. An Action Hub will feature inspiring examples of action happening right now to avert the worst climate impacts and build resilient communities.
LACCW 2022 is hosted by the Government of the Dominican Republic and organized by UN Climate Change in collaboration with global partners UN Development Programme, UN Environment Programme and the World Bank Group. Partners in the region include the Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean (UNECLAC), the CAF–Development Bank of Latin America, and the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB).
LACCW 2022 is part of the Regional Climate Weeks 2022 series, which will continue with Africa Climate Week 2022 later this year. MENACW 2022 kicked off the series in March in Dubai and engaged almost 4,000 people over four days.
