The State of the Climate in the Latin America and Caribbean report provides details of extreme weather and climate change impacts in the entire region, from the Amazon to the Andes, and from coastal waters to snowy peaks.
It gives information on climate indicators including temperatures, ocean heat and acidification, sea level rise and glaciers, as well as on extreme events like tropical cyclones, heatwaves, drought, heavy precipitation and cold waves. It also highlights the impacts of the changing climate on agriculture and food security, migration and displacement, socioeconomic development, the environment and ecosystem services.
The State of the Climate in Latin America and the Caribbean in 2021 report is the second in an annual series. It was launched on 22 July 2022 at a high-level panel jointly hosted by WMO Regional Associations III and IV, and co-organized with the UN Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean (UNECLAC), and the UN Office for Disaster Risk Reduction (UNDRR).
