Accelerating the Energy Transition in Latin America

The paper gives an overview of how Argentina, Brazil and Mexico are addressing climate change and the energy transition.

The landmark signing of the Paris Agreement in 2015 and the subsequent adoption of the Escazú Agreement in 2018 demonstrate the urgency of addressing climate change and the implications this holds for Latin American countries. The energy sector plays a key role in each country and the region, however as new sources and technologies become more accessible and available, decisions over how to incorporate those technologies into the energy mix imply that political decisions and policies will have to be implemented.

This paper is the outcome of interactions between the Center for Integrated Studies on Climate Change (Centro Clima), the Foundation for the Environment and Natural Resources (FARN) and the Iniciátiva Climática de México (ICM) as partners of Climate Transparency.
