Next week, the White House will host the Leaders Summit on Climate, a virtual meeting taking place on April 22 and 23 involving high-level discussions on how new and deeper global partnerships can help urgently address the climate crisis. Of the 40 world leaders invited to the summit, eight represent countries that are based in the Western Hemisphere.
In anticipation of a newly ambitious multilateral agenda in the United States, the Wilson Center’s Latin American Program is hosting a discussion on the importance of environmental leadership and international cooperation in addressing climate change, with U.S. and Latin American government officials.
How have these nations addressed domestic obstacles and major challenges concerning sustainable development? Will ambitious climate policy speed up post-pandemic economic recovery? How should leaders in Latin America and other developing regions best partner with the new U.S. administration, including in the run-up to COP 26, the UN Climate Conference taking place this November in Glasgow?
Please join us on Monday, April 12 from 1:00 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. ET for a high-profile discussion of these and other issues with senior government officials responsible for formulating climate and environmental policy.
