New UNESCO-Avina Foundation Regional Centre for Climate Change and Decision Making
A new regional centre will be established in Montevideo, Uruguay, to train managers and decision makers from the public and private sectors of Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Paraguay and Uruguay. The centre’s training programme will focus on issues related to climate change, particularly those concerning decision making and negotiations and its economic and social impact.
The objective of the initiative is to develop solutions for current and future global sustainability challenges through an effective sciences-policy interface where decision making is informed by the most reliable and relevant available knowledge through academia and peer review.
The Centre was officially launched on 19 March 2013 and will start its activities in August this year.
