Leyes de Cambio Climático en Chile y España: Visiones de sus procesos participativos
The process of preparing the Chilean Climate Change Law, included a broad and extensive participatory process to collect citizen observations and, based on this, identify the contents that would be present in the law. This process, which took place between July 2018 and January 2019, considered early participation, at which time there was no written text, including workshops in all regions of the country, reaching a total of 1,800 people.
In the case of Spain, the preliminary draft of the Climate Change and Energy Transition Law (APLCCTE) is the regulatory and institutional framework to facilitate and guide the decarbonisation of the Spanish economy by 2050, a decarbonisation that must be socially just. The APLCCTE is a reinforced text on ambition, governance, participation and transparency and has been submitted to public information and audience and has incorporated allegations resulting from this process.
The EUROCLIMA + program works to strengthen and update the regulatory frameworks for climate change and to strengthen institutions. As in other regions, Latin American countries need to make institutional and policy changes that facilitate the fulfillment of the commitments agreed in Paris.
Effective and accelerated climate action requires the involvement of many actors: citizens (domestic guidelines), local entities, companies, etc. and therefore requires the coordination of actors beyond the executive power (government action) and the legislative power (parliamentary debate).
