Abstract

Chile is one of the most biologically diverse areas in the world and recently published a "Plan de Accion Nacional de Cambio Climatico 2017-2022" (PANCC-II). This plan, further referred to as the National Action Plan, outlines their commitment to reducing greenhouse gas emissions and mitigating climate change impacts on their country. The ambitious goals put them on the forefront of climate change action in South America. Due to lack of research, it is difficult to implement climate action plans including restoration and reforestation of degraded areas because there is little to no data on how to achieve these goals. This study analyzes the National Action Plan to identify if key climate issues in the area are adequately addressed. I also cross referenced it to other climate action plans to determine the scale of the projects. This project uses information from various scientists working on related tasks in this field and global organizations invested in this topic.
