Climate Change and Peace Plan

CORPOURABA, CORDUPAZ and E3 have built the Climate Change and Peace Plan for the Uraba Antioqueño, Nutibara and Urrao region. It is the first plan in Colombia that brings together the dimensions of peace and climate compatible development, seeking to convert climate change into an opportunity for sustainable development and serving the purpose of peace building. Adopting this innovative approach, we have developed a model that will guide the thinking on future territorial development and the achievement of peace. To support the process, a greenhouse gas emissions analysis and a climate risk study for the 19 municipalities of the region were completed. In addition to this, a Regional Council on Climate Change and Peace has been created, bringing together regional public institutions, associations, companies, academia, civil society and ethnic communities. The Plan was launched in February, 2017 and is now being implemented.
