Colombia is the second most biodiverse country in the world, hosting about 10% of the planet’s biodiversity.
However, the country is severely affected by climate change.
Along with mining and other extractive industries, unsustainable agriculture practices have been designated by the UNDP-led BIOFIN program as a priority area for the reform of biodiversity harmful subsidies.
Area of Focus
In 2021, the Ministry of Environment and Sustainable Development launched the Carbon Neutral Colombia strategy, which aims to promote the efforts of public and private sectors in reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and reach carbon neutrality by 2050.
Colombia aims to foster actions for energy transition, and address unsustainable agricultural practices.
In partnership with the Ministry of Environment and Sustainable Development in Colombia (MINAMBIENTE), our project is in the process of identifying strategic activities that could trigger the implementation of the Global Biodiversity Framework and tackle down some of the environmental issues faced by the country.
