This "1st Symposium on Climate Change and Decision Making" seeks to create a dialogue between the latest science knowledge on the impacts of climate change, its consequences on the economic development of Latin America and the global entrepreneurship trends.
The symposium is an initiative of the Regional Center for Climate Change and Decision Making, created by UNESCO, the Avina Foundation and a network of universities and institutions of the Southern Cone countries. Its main objective is to integrate the complexity, risks and opportunities of climate change in the decision-making processes of public and private sectors in the region. In this context, it will promote opportunities for exchange and discussion among leaders from various sectors who will share their experience, making the link with international leaders at the highest level of the scientific, political and entrepreneur and exchange learning experiences in order to integrate climate change challenges in the daily management of their strategies and institutions.
