- Two members of the British Climate Change Team will travel to Chile to support national experts in building a similar team in the country and exchange experiences on carbon assumptions, mitigation and adaptation.
In a joint effort to address the challenges of climate change, this week they will receive a visit from Chile, two members of the UK Climate Change Committee, Sasha Abraham and Emily Nurse, who are grateful for the support of the British Embassy in Chile. In the country from 15 to 17 November to jointly explore how the Climate Change Framework Act can be progressed based on key elements of British legislation, particularly the use of scientific evidence for decision-making.
The presence of British experts is of particular relevance because it is a key component of Chile’s Marco law and the creation of a Scientific Advisory Panel on Climate Change, the terms of which will be published shortly. This group, like the British group, will provide essential scientific advice for developing and updating climate change management tools.
The UK Climate Change Panel, known as the Panel on Climate Change, acts as an independent body to advise the British government on climate issues and emissions reductions. Sasha Abraham and Emily Nurse, experts in international climate and carbon assumptions respectively, will share their experiences of how the United Kingdom constructs its carbon assumptions and how these processes translate into effective public policies.
A series of meetings with the Ministry of Environment, Energy, Science and the Interdisciplinary Technical Committee on Climate Change (ETICC) aimed to understand the British process, but also to receive recommendations on how to address the specific challenges of implementing Le Marco. In Chile.
This exchange of knowledge promises to be a significant step forward in international cooperation to address the climate crisis, with Chile and the United Kingdom working together to develop policies based on scientific evidence.
Since adopting the Climate Change Framework Act in 2022, Chile has successfully marked its commitment to carbon neutrality by 2050, reducing vulnerability and increasing resilience to the adverse effects of climate change, and complying with international obligations. The Act establishes science policy as a cornerstone, ensuring that mitigation and adaptation measures are based on the best available scientific information.
