During the opening of the Latin American summit on climate change entitled ‘High-level Dialogue on Climate Action in the Americas’, organized by Argentina, the president invited those attending to promote a fraternal dialogue on how to think about a ‘common project in our common home.’

‘Today we are summoned by the urgency of climate action and the need to think of innovative mechanisms that allow us to better rebuild and strengthen cooperation ties,’ he said.

Fernández stressed that Argentina and the current Government put climate action at the center of priorities, and said that the country will announce at the United Nations Conference on Climate Change (COP 25) to be held next month in Glasgow, Scotland, an increase of two percent in the country’s contribution to the fight against this, bringing the commitment up to 27.7 percent, higher than what was presented in 2016.

At another point in his opening speech, Fernández pointed out that there is no ecological crisis unrelated to the social crisis as Pope Francis says. Wealth in the world must be seen by putting value on environmental assets. The lessons learned in the pandemic with vaccines must be applied. ‘We must apply the drawing rights of the International Monetary Fund to reduce climate shock and financial shock,’ he emphasized.
