Uniting for climate action
#SDGLive Edwing Rosales // Ministerio de Ambiente y Recursos Naturales, Guatemala: “Guatemala is vulnerable to climate change and is aware of the importance of scientific information for the National Plan for Climate Change Mitigation and Adaptation”
#SDGLive Homero Paltan, Ecuador // PhD Student at University of Oxford: “We need to improve the communication of science and technology to different stakeholders, decision makers and the society in Latin America, and particularly in Ecuador”
#SDGLive Benki Piyako Ashaninka, Apiwtxa, Brazil: “Scientific knowledge and traditional knowledge are both important to tackle global change problems.”
#SDGLive Donnovan Innis, Bahamas: “The best way to communicate research is to find ways to mediate that speech, organizations like IAI can help in doing that kind of things.”
#SDGLive Jose H. Muelbert, Universidade Federal do Rio Grande, Brazil asks:
1) How does your government/institution perceive the role of ocean science with respect to climate changes?
2) What actions has your government/institution taken to contribute to study the role of oceans in climate change?
3) Considering the role oceans play in climate change and the lack of oceans observations, what has your government/institution done to improve or to contribute to the Global Oceans Observation System (GOOS) or to regional ocean observations?
#SDGLive Amparo Martínez Arroyo, INECC México/IAI Representative, about integrating science and policy: “(…) In Mexico, we do this through specific projects, but mainly because we have major common goals, such as the Sustainable Development Goals and the Paris commitments.”
#SDGLive Pedro Jaureguiberry, Universidad de Córdoba, Argentina: “How will be the gap between scientific knowledge and the required concrete actions that need to be taken dealt with to meet the international agreements?”
#SDGLive Elsa Cardona, México (University of Bonn): the lands of indigenous peoples are being used to generate wind power. How will this conflicting interests between clean energy and the rights of the most vulnerable be addressed to meet the goals of the Paris Agreement?”
#SDGLive Pedro Jaureguiberry, Universidad de Córdoba, Argentina:”Complex interactions among different social actors such as governments, institutions and society, how are the different perspectives and needs going to be dealt with in order to meet the international agreements?”
