Latin America & Caribbean Regional Resilience Hub

The COP27 Latin America and Caribbean Regional Resilience Hub (LAC Resilience Hub) is led by Fundación Avina. The LAC Resilience Hub is delivering a programme of virtual workshops to engage different stakeholders in the region during September and October 2022.

The Regional Resilience Hubs play a crucial role of ensuring the voices and perspectives of traditionally under-represented communities are amplified and heard. They play a central role in illuminating and communicating regional priorities, actions, solutions and challenges on the global stage at COP27.

Key Messages

Fundacion Avina, with all of its co-leads, talked to experts from the Latin American and Caribbean region through a collaborative process in 7 thematic areas to understand what were the key messages that needed to be shared at COP27.

These regional dialogues took place between September and October of 2022. Three key messages can be highlighted from all the interactions. 

  • The importance of promoting regional collaborative processes as a means to strengthen climate resilience in the region. 
  • The relevance of the inclusion of local voices in decision making processes, particularly those of women, the youth, local communities and indigenous peoples and the respect and promotion of local knowledge and cosmovision. 
  • The need for local communities to access climate finance in an expedite and effective manner and in a way that they can be the authors of their own projects.

We commissioned a series of cartoons to capture the key findings, discussions and challenge areas that resonated the most within each region, which you can view online here or download here

Programme of Events

The workshops addressed topics of relevance for the region and each workshop was co-led by Avina and partner organizations of great trajectory, and were held with the objectives of:

  • Identify key messages to position Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC)’s priorities at COP27 in relation to resilience and adaptation to climate change.
  • Create a space for multi-stakeholder dialogue that will highlight the vision of Latin America and the Caribbean.

Although the region faces many threats due to climate change, 7 thematic workshops were defined to be the focus of the discussions. Fundación Avina’s co-leads are included in the topics below.

Local Voices, the role of indigenous communities, youth, women and local communities: Voices for Climate Action Alliance and Impulsouth.
