IPCC Report 2019 Climate Change and Land

IPCC has approved and published the report "Climate Change and Land: a special report by the IPCC on climate change". This shows that a better way to manage land resources can contribute to curbing climate change, but it's not the only solution that needs to be implemented.

"The climate crisis is reducing earth's ability to support humanity" states the IPCC.

G-20 and Carbon Neutrality 2050

Chilean President Sebastián Piñera took the lead during the G20 summit intervening for climate change. He pointed out: "We have two options: one, is simply to wait and continue to doubt that the current road leads to a disaster, as the United Nations experts have said over and over again in their six reports that they have already published; the second way is to take action now.” He continued "in Chile we decided to take action. Chile has committed to being a carbon neutral country before 2050, and for that we are applying public policies so that it is not only rhetoric, but also reality". "We have just made an agreement with several countries - France, Germany, Netherlands, Spain and the United Kingdom- to commit ourselves into action for carbon neutrality before the year 2050.”

The effort of the President of Chile, host country of COP25, reinforces the need and urgency of unity that needs to exist during COP25 to reach an agreement on the controversial Article 6.

COP 25 launched

"The time has come for action", said Chilean President Sebastián Piñera while officially launching COP 25, which will take place between December 2 and 13 in Santiago, Chile.

At the ceremony held in the Chilean government palace, the president said "It will be a great opportunity for the country and the whole world to become truly aware that time is running out and that every day, the goals become more urgent and require more ambition and more enforceability. For that reason, the time has come for action.”

"For COP 25, Chile is promoting progress in the protection of the oceans, Antarctica, electromobility, renewable energies, the circular economy and the protection of forests, ecosystems and biodiversity" indicates the official information from the Presidency. "On the occasion it was announced that the Bicentennial Park of Cerrillos will host the summit and Gonzalo Muñoz Abogabir, founder of the TriCiclos recycling company, was presented as Champion of COP 25, in charge of advising the Presidency of COP and work in a coordinated manner with the United Nations. In addition, the ambassadors of COP 25 were also presented: public figures in charge of raising awareness of the issues that the summit will address."
