State of the Climate in Latin America and the Caribbean 2020

0

The “State of the Climate in Latin America and the Caribbean 2020” report, released by the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) earlier this week, can be downloaded here.

 

The report provides a snapshot of the effects of increasing temperatures, changing precipitation patterns, storms and retreating glaciers.

 

It includes transboundary analyses, such as of the drought of the South American Pantanal and the intense hurricane season in Central America-Caribbean. It provides a detailed regional breakdown of worsening global climate change indicators.

 

The report and an accompanying story map show how marine life, coastal ecosystems and the human communities that depend on them, particularly in Small Island Developing States, are facing increasing threats from ocean acidification and heat and rising sea levels.

 

The report was released at the high-level conference,  “Working together for weather, climate and water resilience in Latin America and the Caribbean” held on 17 August 2021 under the auspices of the WMO, the United Nations Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean (ECLAC), and the UN Office for Disaster Risk Reduction (UNDRR).
