Up in Smoke? Latin America and the Caribbean
Climate Change is already hitting Latin America and the Caribbean and this is increasing the vulnerability of poor communities. “Up in Smoke? Latin America and the Caribbean” is the third report from the Working Group on Climate Change and Development. The supporting organisations of this report are: Progressio (formerly CIIR), ActionAid International, Christian Aid, Tearfund, nef (the new economics foundation), Greenpeace, Friends of the Earth, CAFOD, RSPB, WWF, IIED (the International Institute for Environment and Development), Practical Action (formerly ITDG), people & planet, Columban Faith and Justice, Operation Noah, teri Europe, Medact, BirdLife International and WorldVision. These agencies have on-the-ground experience of working with communities whose fragile existences, and the ecosystems in which they live, are being further threatened by global warming. (this report is also available to download in Spanish & Portuguese)
In recognition of the need to think of climate change as a development issue and not just an environmental one, IIED and nef (the new economics foundation) decided to establish a coalition to bring development organisations into the climate debate.
