The Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela has reiterated its position in regards to climate change as well as its impact on Latin-American societies, resulting in a global phenomenon that calls for joint action.

The Bolivarian government, in representation of the Bolivarian Alliance for the Peoples of Our America (ALBA), has ratified its commitment on reaching an agreement to come into force by year 2020 in regards of limiting greenhouse gas emissions.

This position has been reiterated countless times, and more recently at the opening plenary session of the Ad Hoc Working Group on the Durban Platform for Enhanced Action (ADP), as part of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, which took place in Bonn, Germany on June 1st 2015. The Venezuelan government has expressed that it “firmly believes that a true solution to reverse the concentration of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere and their impact on climate, must be built on the urgent need to change the system that has caused this global problem, in order to achieve solutions for the alterations that have been generated in the climatic system. Unsustainable models of production and consumption, excessive accumulation of capital and depletion of natural resources are fundamental causes that threaten the biophysical limits of the planet”.

In this sense, the Embassy of Venezuela in Canada, along with its Consulates General, have promoted the 4th Gathering of Knowledge at the city of Montreal, on November 28th 2015, which has the topic of climate change, its impact on global ecosystems and their economies as central axis of discussion. World-renown specialists such as Dr. David Suzuki, co-founder of the David Suzuki foundation and Mr. Karel Mayrand, Chair of Al Gore´s Climate Reality Project in Canada, will discuss the most serious environmental problems that humanity faces today, as well as how to find a balance between environmental protection and sustainable development.
