The Road to COP16 in Cali with Colombian Minister of Environment Susana Muhamad

RSVP Now

Colombia, the most biodiverse country in the world per square kilometer, is a critical player in global climate resilience and adaptation initiatives. In October, the country will host the 2024 United Nations Biodiversity Conference (COP16) in the city of Cali. The conference comes at a time when preserving biodiversity is an increasing global priority and as the Colombian government is working to advance a transition to renewable energy and harness its biodiversity to respond to global climate change.

During a critical moment for Colombia’s future as a global leader in climate sustainability, join us for a conversation with Susana Muhamad, Colombia’s minister of environment and sustainable development, on Friday, May 31, from 9:30 to 10:30 AM EDT, in partnership with the Atlantic Council’s Adrienne Arsht Latin America Center and the World Resources Institute. Muhamad will discuss what the COP16 summit in Cali will mean for global efforts to respond to climate change.
