The Regional Workshop for Latin America and the Caribbean on Article 6 of the Convention, organized in response to a request by the Conference of Parties at its thirteenth session (Bali, December 2007) (decision 9/CP.13), contributed to the intermediate review of progress in 2010, to evaluate its effectiveness and identify emerging gaps and opportunities.

The discussions at the workshop contributed to assessing the level of implementation of the New Delhi work programme in the region, identifying needs and persistent gaps, with a view to making recommendations on how to enhance the level of implementation of Article 6 activities and to contribute to the interim review process.

  • To develop options and strategies for strengthening and expanding these activities;
  • To promote greater regional and international cooperation on implementing the New Delhi Work Programme.

Expected outcomes

  • Experiences of Parties;
  • Experiences of relevant IGOs and NGOs;
  • Opportunities for enhanced regional cooperation;
  • Promotion of and training on CC:iNet to facilitate sharing of information.


Participants from 21 countries across Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC), representatives from Spain, the United Nations International Children’s Fund (UNICEF), and national and regional experts from NGOs, youth organizations and trade unions participated in the workshop. The workshop, which took place over three and a half days, was structured around 18 presentations and four small working group sessions. The first day was dedicated to best practices for involving the public in the implementation of Article 6, on tools for networking and information exchange promoted by the United Nations system, such as CC:iNet and UN CC:Learn, and on reporting on the implementation of Article 6 in LAC; the second day was devoted to awareness raising issues, in particular among children and young people; during the third day discussions were centered on promotion of regional and international cooperation, and education and training efforts related to climate change; in the fourth day the results of a survey on national and regional priorities in the implementation of Article 6 and the amended New Delhi work programme in LAC were presented. In the course of the last session the workshop participants outlined a number of recommendations, which the SBI may wish to consider in providing further support to the implementation of the amended New Delhi work programme in Latin America and the Caribbean.
