The Challenge

The Latina event will result in an intense national day of meetings in order to stimulate a debate within the community with the active participation of stakeholders. The aim is to define innovative local strategies for mitigation and adaptation to climate change and reflect on the opportunities for development and economic and employment consequences that may ensue. The day is structured in a plenary session in the morning and thematic round tables in the afternoon.
