The Ministry of the Environment (MinAmbiente) announced the completion of the Colombia’s Long-Term Climate Strategy E2050.
The entity began the process of public consultation to make the roadmap available to citizens that the country must follow to achieve carbon neutrality by 2050, according to a press release.
“This consultation aims to receive comments and proposals to be evaluated as input and to strengthen the E2050, which must be presented to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change before the end of this year,” MinAmbiente said.
The entity plans to dialogue with indigenous communities, Afro-Colombians, and civil society, among others, to socialize the strategy.
MinAmbiente Carlos Correa said that this strategy seeks to lay the foundations for a climate-resilient future, with a high adaptive capacity of sectors and regions through carbon neutrality.
“The goals are for all Colombians. For example, we can all contribute from our homes and in our daily lives to reduce Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions by 51% in 2030, and carbon neutrality by 2050,” Correa highlighted.
The entity proposed that the E2050 document be periodically reviewed, updated, and adapted, in highly participatory processes.
