Social Perception of Climate Change in Uruguay
5 ago. 2021
This study provides an approximation of how to understand climate change, what impacts are perceived in the daily lives of people and sectors of the national economy, identifying needs, challenges and opportunities for action.
This is the first study of this scope on the perception of climate change in Uruguay, and we hope that the results of the process will be the basis for future comparative studies, as well as an input for the long-term National Climate Strategy and that it will inform future climate change policies.
This report was developed within the framework of the Climate Promise initiative of the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), together with the National Directorate for Climate Change of the Ministry of the Environment of Uruguay, with the cooperation of the National Climate Change Response System.
The Climate Promise initiative is implemented globally by UNDP, and funded by the Government of Sweden, with the objective of fostering greater understanding, ownership and involvement of the countries in the climate agenda, to strengthen and promote compliance with their current Nationally Determined Contributions.
This report is based on the findings of a study commissioned to Opción Consultores.
