📅 18-22 July 2022
Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic
LACCW 2022 will be held from 18-22 July in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic. The Week will engage and empower stakeholders to drive climate action across countries, communities, and economies. Working together opens opportunities to advance climate action, address social inequalities and invest in development that is good for humanity and nature.
LACCW 2022 is a collaboration platform to explore:
- Resilience against climate risks
- The transition to a low-emission economy
- Partnerships to solve pressing challenges
Climate Week sessions will discuss topics relevant to the region, including urban planning, nature-based solutions, agriculture, and financing the future. Public and private sector leaders can tailor a program to their own net-zero transformation, find common ground through collaboration and forge partnerships for climate action.
With more voices at the table and more collaborators to connect with, LACCW 2022 will advance climate action in the LAC region and contribute to global progress on climate change.
The initial schedule for LACCW 2022 has been published with high-level sessions for Ministers together with a wide range of side events, providing opportunities for stakeholders to engage. Key opportunities and challenges identified at LACCW 2022 will be brought forward to the November UN Climate Change Conference COP27 in Sharm El-Sheikh, Egypt.
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).
