LEDS GP webinar: Decarbonizing Latin America: A pathway for zero carbon by 2050

Register for the webinar here.

Register for this webinar from our Latin America and the Caribbean Regional Partnership (LEDS LAC), which discusses the key findings from a recently released report visualizing a pathway for complete decarbonization of the Latin American and the Caribbean (LAC) regional economy by mid-century. The webinar will review specific sector-wide actions, within a foreseeable technology and economics context.

The report, from the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) DTU Partnership, suggests the following actions:

  1. full decarbonization of the power sector
  2. mass electrification of the transport sector
  3. grid integration of the regional economies
  4. expansion of the power system to absorb the new demand by transport
  5. zero net deforestation
  6. restoration of about 200 million Ha of degraded land through a combination of natural and assisted reforestation, agroforestry and silvopastures
  7. reduction of emissions from agriculture through nutrient management measures
  8. abatement measures in industry.

The webinar will be held in Spanish. For more information about the webinar, click here. If you have any questions about this event, please contact the LEDS LAC Platform Secretariat:
