Argentina Facing Climate Change: An Agenda for the Care of our Common Home
3:00 PM - 4:00 PM ESTOnline
With the adoption of the National Law on Global Climate Change, and under the leadership of President Alberto Fernández, the Argentine Republic has adopted climate action as a state policy. In December, Argentina submitted its second Nationally Determined Contribution (NDC) to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change. The new submission commits to cut emissions to nearly 26% lower than the first NDC, and also includes Argentina’s second Adaptation Communication.
Fulfilling new climate commitments demands significant resolve, but also presents new opportunities. With this initiative, Argentina emerges as a regional leader committed to strengthening multilateralism, international cooperation, and dialogue on implementing an economic recovery aligned with the Paris Agreement. Please join our high-level panel discussing Argentina's latest climate developments, reflections on the importance of this commitment within the broader climate ambition agenda, and a Q&A with our panel.
