Region360.org Policy Newsletter

February 26 · Issue #4 · View online

We monitor hundreds of bilingual publications and organizations from across the sustainability and climate policy sectors in Latin America. Our human editors vet this content for quality and hand-pick the most stimulating and pertinent policy-related content. We have strong interests on climate adaptation and mitigation, SDG's, water and climate justice, indigenous rights, and gender equity.


ICYMI: our bilingual newsletter now includes an analysis and summary of the articles, events, and informational content we are curating for you every week . Going forward, this will be our new format to help guide our readers through each week’s developments on sustainability and climate change policy in Latin America. We hope to include more content, such as interviews, podcasts, guest authors, and more educational opportunities in the future. We are excited to announce that we are preparing to go public in two weeks, so please send us your feedback, and ideas for interviews, topics, and content.
Learn about our content curation process:
“We are drowning in information, while starving for wisdom. The world henceforth will be run by synthesizers, people able to put together the right information at the right time, think critically about it, and make important choices wisely” E.O. Wilson–Consilience: The Unity of Knowledge.
Every week, we monitor hundreds of bilingual publications, organizations, and information sources from across the sustainability, climate, development, and conservation policy sectors in Latin America. Our human editors vet this content for quality and novelty and then hand-pick the most stimulating, substantial, and pertinent policy-related content to produce this bulletin. In particular, we are tracking content related to climate adaptation and mitigation, SDG commitments, water issues, climate justice, indigenous rights, gender equity, and policy actions. You can suggest sources or content by replying to this message. As a member of region360.org, you can also contribute your own work, including annotated bibliographies, case studies, and analysis pieces.

In this issue: although not specifically focused on Latin America, we cannot stress enough the importance of the most recent UNEP report on climate, biodiversity, and pollution, which seeks to “translate the current state of scientific knowledge into crisp, clear and digestible facts-based messages that the world can relate to and follow up on. It first provides an Earth diagnosis of current and projected human-induced environmental change, by putting facts and interlinkages in perspective, including by using smart infographics.”
For those interested in sustainability policy in South America, we continue to monitor the work of the CODS (Centro de los Objetivos de Desarrollo Sostenible para América Latina y el Caribe), an initiative of the Sustainable Development Solutions Network (SDSN) and the Universidad de los Andes. This week, the CODS has released an excellent review synthesizing and evaluating the existing literature on biodiversity and conservation policy in Latin America.
For a contemporary take on the role of Indigenous Peoples in conservation efforts, we include an interview with the founder of Conservation International, who outlines new efforts in the northern Amazon and elsewhere to link policy, Indigenous storytelling, and conservation. We encourage you to attend two new free online events: a series of conversations on sustainable development alternatives with Brazilian philosopher Roberto Mangabeira Unger, organized by the SDSN; and a series of lectures organized by a group of ten Latin American universities and research centers on the future of the SDG’s in a post-Covid world. Check out more events and articles below.
Happy reading!
