In partnership with Penn in Latin America and the Caribbean (PLAC), which seeks to promote interaction and collaboration across Penn Schools, we will investigate climate change as it relates to the UN Sustainable Development Goals during this day long conference. According to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, the projected mean warming for Latin America to the end of the century ranges from 1 to 4°C. This warming, already experienced through more frequent extreme weather events, has major social, political, economic, environmental, health, and financial implications. We focus on how the region is tackling these complex challenges and resiliency initiatives to overcome catastrophic weather-related events and protection of the most vulnerable populations.
