LatinClima is a community of journalists and communicators and a capacity-building and information center on climate change for Latin America and the Caribbean. It was created in April 2015 by the Ministry of Environment and Energy of Costa Rica (MINAE), the Ministry of Housing, Land Management and Environment of Uruguay (MVOTMA) and the Tropical Agricultural Research and High Education Center (CATIE), with seed funding from the German International Cooperation Agency (GIZ). It also receives support from the Spanish Agency for International Development Cooperation (AECID) through the Arauclima Program and the Tropical Science Center (CCT).
LatinClima aims to raise awareness of climate change among the Spanish-speaking public, focusing on ways of reducing greenhouse gas emissions that are causing global warming and adapting to the impact of climate change. It works closely with journalists, communicators, opinion leaders, professionals, experts and organizations on climate change topics. LatinClima can be accessed at www.latinclima.org.
