Considering that the Latin America and the Caribbean is highly vulnerable to social, economic and environmental climate change is imperative to find innovative solutions to address the effects of this phenomenon.
According to the recommendations of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change and the amended New Delhi work programme for Article 6 of the Convention, the UNFCCC Secretariat in conjunction with the Government of the Dominican Republic organized the \\\"Regional Workshop for Latin America and the Caribbean on the implementation of Article 6 \\\", held in Bavaro, Dominican Republic from 27 to 30 April 2010, at which representatives of 21 countries in the region made recommendations for strengthening and extending activities on climate change education, training and public awareness for Latin American and Caribbean societies.

One of the proposals of the workshop was the compilation of best practices in Latin America and the Caribbean, on implementing Article 6. In response to this proposal, the National Council for Climate Change and Clean Development Mechanism of the Dominican Republic in collaboration with the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, the UK and Government of Spain, the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), International Strategy for Disaster Reduction (ISDR) and the Global Foundation for Democracy and Development (FUNGLODE), compiled experiences in the region on the implementation of the amended New Delhi work programme.
