ArticuLAC: Public-Private Articulation for Climate Action in Latin America

ArticuLAC is a community of people representing governmental and private sector organisations from EUROCLIMA+ programme countries, who participate in dialogue, experience exchanges and capacity building activities, with the aim of strengthening spaces and mechanisms to articulate and align the climate strategies and actions of both sectors, in pursuit of the achievement of the goals of the Paris Agreement and the Sustainable Development Goals.

This is a joint initiative of EUROCLIMA+ through the German Society for International Cooperation (GIZ), the LEDS LAC Regional Platform and the Latin American Centre for Competitiveness and Sustainable Development (CLACDS) of the INCAE Business School. It was launched in 2018 under the name Community of Practice on Private Sector Engagement in Climate Policy Processes in Latin America. Institutions from Argentina, Chile, Colombia, Guatemala, Costa Rica, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, Honduras, Mexico, Panama, Paraguay, Peru and Uruguay are currently participating.

What does the Community of Practice on Private Sector and Climate Policy consist of?

This Community of Practice (CoP) was launched in 2018 in response to the need for greater integration of the private sector in the formulation and implementation of climate policies and strategies. In both regional and expert workshops on different topics, the need for governments in the region to have capacities and tools to establish dialogues and collaborative relationships with the private sector has been detected, as well as the importance of strengthening the participation of the private sector not only in policy implementation, but also from the early stages of their design.

Participating in the CoP are National country teams from EUROCLIMA+ Programme countries, consisting of representatives from the public sector, private sector and other stakeholders involved in initiatives related to private sector participation in climate policy processes in their respective countries. CoP activities include face-to-face events and online sessions designed to promote joint learning through the exchange of experiences and knowledge of new methodologies and tools.

During its first year of work, between July 2018 and June 2019, teams of three people from 9 countries participated: Argentina, Bolivia, Chile, Costa Rica, El Salvador, Honduras, Mexico, Peru and Uruguay. The second year started at the end of November 2019, with teams of 6-8 people from eight countries: Argentina, Chile, Costa Rica, Ecuador, Honduras, Mexico, Peru and Uruguay. The third year started in May 2021 and currently involves members from 13 Latin American countries: Argentina, Chile, Colombia, Dominican Republic, Guatemala, Costa Rica, Ecuador, Honduras, Mexico, Panama, Paraguay, Peru and Uruguay.
