Uruguay produces 0.04% of the Emissions of greenhouse gases globally and continues to reduce its pollution through better practices in the agricultural sector, according to what was concluded in a recent report prepared by the CAF – Development Bank of Latin America and the Caribbean.

He head of the Ministry of Environment (MA), Robert Bouvierexplained in the last few hours in an interview with radio Montecarlo that, based on this 0.04% contribution by the country to the world stage, the “guilt” of the Uruguay It is “minimal.”

“(From the bank) they showed us the Latin American reality and at the same time how it is inserted Uruguay in that Latin American reality, that of course each country has its strategy and must have its strategy because it (climate change) impacts us all differently,” explained Minister Bouvier about the report from the CAF – Development Bank of Latin America and Caribbean.

“There is no doubt that we have to have global and regional agreements in order to access the financing that, undoubtedly, is possible when we talk about regional projects,” continued the leader in reference to the credits that the different multilateral organizations offer for environmental projects.

“We are harmed by climate change”

In that sense, Bouvier highlighted that, “undoubtedly” for the Uruguay, “international cooperation is very important.” “Let us think that Uruguay is guilty of 0.04% of Emissions of greenhouse gases. It is very little, but obviously we are harmed by what climate change has been.”

In turn, the minister stressed that at the country level “adaptation measures” should be adopted in addition to those already taken in terms of greenhouse gas mitigation, since, he understands, Uruguay is being “quite a bit” affected by climate change.
