Building Resilience in the Central American Region under a Synergistic Approach between Mitigation and Adaptation - Focusing on Agriculture, Forestry and Other Land Uses (AFOLU) sector

El Salvador (2019)

This initiative is a proposal of several countries of the Central American Integration System (SICA), recognizing the advantages of a significant contribution to the global goal of 1.5º C, and the benefits of a collective and non-isolated action that encourages action in other regions of Latin America and the world. In this regard, it has been identified that in the Agriculture, Forestry and Other Land Use AFOLU sector, the region has high emissions, just over 50% of its total emissions and that it already has relatively homogeneous strategies, action plans, and technical operating instruments, which would enable the construction and implementation of a collective action within the parameters set in the Global Climate Action Summit.
