Summary of climate change patterns projected for 2100 in Latin America and the Caribbean
Nieves López Izquierdo, Associate Consultant UNEP/GRID-Arendal
Regional climate change patterns projected for the end of the century indicate that the Central American and Caribbean sub-regions will experience an increase in the intensity of hurricanes, along with a reduction in precipitation and a corresponding series of droughts. In Colombia, Ecuador, Peru, the Plurinational State of Bolivia, Chile and Argentina, glaciers will continue to shrink, while countries with coasts on the Pacific and Atlantic Oceans will see an increase in precipitation.
