AIDA’s Climate Change Program helps to limit the severity of climate change by promoting projects, programs, policies, and financial systems that respond to Latin America’s needs and priorities.

AIDA’s attorneys work to:

  • Promote investments in renewable energy and efficiency programs that limit the severity of climate change.
  • Reduce emissions of short-lived climate pollutants by identifying ways to strengthen regulations and by discouraging construction of large dams in the tropics.
  • Build government capacity to incorporate human rights perspective and to access international financing for climate projects and programs that respond to national needs and priorities.
