Development and the environment are closely linked: Our survival depends on the protection of ecosystems, for they are an irreplaceable source of goods and services. Overstepping the planet's biological and physical limits increases inequality, uncertainty and insecurity.
The Spanish Cooperation Fourth Master Plan approaches the environment as a global public asset, something which requires multilateral organisations, governments and citizens alike to coordinate their actions at a global, regional and local level.
On the basis of this, and within a context of sectorial and geographic concentration, AECID will insist on the importance of maintaining a regional focus and strengthening institutions and will prioritise a cross-group approach; that is, the inclusion of the environment in all its actions.
We highlight the new ARAUCLIMA Programme, Spanish Cooperation programme for Environment and Climate
Change in Latin America and the Caribbean.
