In the global context, LAC is one of the regions known to produce the lowest levels of Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions from the transformation and use of energy. Levels of GHG in LAC represent 5% of global emissions in the energy sector.OVE's sectorial study evaluates the IDB's actions in the sector and its implications for Climate Change, both in mitigating GHG emissions as well as emerging activities developed to address climate vulnerabilities.
