Green Transportation Use in Santiago’s Historic City Center
Investment: Financed by the British Embassy at Santiago within the context of the NAMAS (“nationally appropriate mitigations measures”) project This study proposes a preliminary implementation plan for a green transportation zone in Santiago’s historic city center, seeking to reduce greenhouse gas emissions as well as local pollutants. Highly replicable, the potential exists to redefine the urban transportation model with a new focus on integrated, sustainable transpotrtation. The study was carried out by the Chilean consultancy Sistemas Sustentables and involved active participation on the part of the Santiago local government, the Ministry of the Environment and the Ministry of Transportation. Start year 2012

Adaptation actions

Climate-Change Adaptation for the Forestry, Agriculture and Ranching Sectors
This plan was elaborated by a technical team from the Ministries of the Environment and Agriculture to respond to adverse climatechange effects that affect the sector as well as to contribute to greenhouse gas mitigation. Recently a citizen-participation process was undertaken that operates as a forum that invites individuals to get involved and register their opinions with regard to the improvement of public affairs. The plan proposes 27 measures to be implemented nationwide, including in the city of Santiago. Each measure includes an objective, strategic guidelines, responsible parties, coverage and objective milestones. Start year
