Regional Overview present the regional food security and nutrition situation, including trends of undernourishment, food insecurity and all forms of malnutrition, together with other indicators that could help the understanding of the causes of hunger and malnutrition.

The Strategic Framework for Resilience and Climate for Latin America and the Caribbean took as its starting point an integrated vision of resilience, with an emphasis on reducing the impact of climate change and improving food security and nutrition.

Extreme weather and climate change impacts including mega-drought, extreme rainfall, land and marine heatwaves and glacier melt are affecting the Latin America and the Caribbean region, from the Amazon to the Andes and from Pacific and Atlantic Ocean waters to the snowy depths of Patagonia.

Latin American and Caribbean (LAC) nations have used long-term scenarios and energy planning tools to inform national planning for decades, providing excellent examples of how governments can make strategic use of such scenarios in the context of complex clean energy transitions.

This report looks into the application of CLIMADA (CLIMate ADAptation), a natural catastrophe model that calculates climate risk and potential of adaptation in the Caribbean. The study marks a starting point to determine economic losses and damages as well as adaptation measures for the region which is commonly exposed to natural disasters.

This working paper provides an overview of climate commitments and actions from non-state (businesses and civil society) and subnational (cities, subnational regions) actors in the Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC) region.

In recent years, various factors have diverted the world off the path to eradicating hunger, food insecurity and all forms of malnutrition by 2030, and the COVID-19 pandemic has exacerbated this trend. Latin America and the Caribbean is no exception.

This systematization report seeks to briefly document and summarize the implementation of the 2020 Action Plan of the Climate Change and Resilience Issue-Based Coalition, identifying lessons learned and contributing to informing the 2021 Action Plan. This document is organized into four sections.

Climate change and extreme weather are threatening human health and safety, food, water and energy security and the environment in Latin America and the Caribbean. The impacts span the entire region, including Andean peaks, mighty river basins and low-lying islands, according to a new report from the World Meteorological Organization (WMO).

There is increasing recognition that climate-related and environmental risks are a source of financial risks. Using publicly available data, this paper attempts a preliminary estimation of the physical and transition risks for the banking sector in a sample of economies in Latin America and the Caribbean.
