In this regard, the national strategy for long-term development with low greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions will be presented after the inauguration on Monday of Panama’s pavilion at this event in Glasglow, Scotland.

According to a press release of the Presidency, Panama, Bhutan and Surinam are the only countries in the world that capture more greenhouse gases than those emitted into the atmosphere, thanks to the reforestation program, among other factors.

Thereon, the source reported that, by 2050, Panama is planning to reforest 50,000 hectares that will contribute to the absorption of about 2.6 million tons of carbon dioxide (CO2).

It is also working on the creation of a market to set carbon prices through the national “Reduce your Footprint” program that will facilitate green recovery and attain carbon neutrality in 2050.

Climate Change Analyst at the Ministry of Environment, Yoisy Belen, recently told the TVN channel that one of the challenges to keep negativity in carbon levels is having the tools for the monitoring of forest coverage.

For this purpose, Panama has the National System of Environmental Information, which is a platform that aims to sytematize, store and distribute information about the nation’s natural resources and sustainability.
