Estimated investment needed to address climate change in Colombia

Climate change induced by anthropogenic activities is a barely doubted reality, and the agriculture sector, which is highly dependent on climate conditions, is a critical sector within the changing face of the earth-atmosphere system. This is even more true for developing countries which depend heavily on the agricultural sector as Colombia and which are known to suffer stronger climatic irritations. In this context, it is of vital importance to Colombia to define national priorities to tackle climate change in the agricultural sector, as well as investment and financial flows (FI & F) required to implement them. So the assessment of I&FF; is focused on the agricultural sector, to support efficient planning of mitigation and adaptation measures required to address climate change.
The assessment of investment and financial flows (I&FF;) is one component of the global UNDP project “Capacity Development for Policy Makers to Address Climate Change.”
