Here are direct links to the reports submitted by LAC nations to the secretariat of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC). known as "national communications."
Since all LAC nations are non-Annex I parties, the content and periodicity requirements for their reports are less stringent. But, as the UNFCCC Secretariat puts it: "The core elements... are information on emissions and removals of greenhouse gases (GHGs) and details of the activities a Party has undertaken to implement the Convention. National communications usually contain information on national circumstances, vulnerability assessment, financial resources and transfer of technology, and education, training and public awareness..." Information on specific policies and measures taken to address climate change are required in national communications from Annex I parties, but not necesssarily from non-Annex I (i.e., LAC) parties.
The Bahamas, Barbados, Cuba, El Salvador, Grenada, Guatemala, Haiti, Nicaragua, St. Vincent and the Grenadines, Suriname, Trinidad and Tobago, and Venezuela have yet to submit their second communication, but most of the rest of LAC have and are working on their third, with the notable exceptions of Uruguay, which has already submitted its third
and Mexico, which has submitted its fifth. This page will be updated as they submit their
new reports. Please note that some countries provide their report
in multiple languages.
Warning: date(): It is not safe to rely on the system's timezone settings. You are *required* to use the date.timezone setting or the date_default_timezone_set() function. In case you used any of those methods and you are still getting this warning, you most likely misspelled the timezone identifier. We selected the timezone 'UTC' for now, but please set date.timezone to select your timezone. in /home/temasa5/public_html/tools/climcom.php on line 455
