A workshop on climate change and its main consequences for life on the planet will be held today, focusing on issues such as resilience and mitigation, among the most significant.

Organized by the University of Havana, the Embassy of Canada and other institutions, the meeting will address issues such as the challenges for adaptation and mitigation to this phenomenon, caused by global warming and excessive greenhouse gas emissions into the atmosphere.

The workshop's headquarters will be the Aula Magna of the University of Havana until Thursday, and the event includes in its program the analysis of sea elevation's causes and the management of coastal areas, another key aspect of the outcomes of climate change , which directly affects the small island States, especially the Caribbean.

Soils and food security, as well as agricultural production from urban agriculture and other forms of management such as cooperatives are added to the program's proposals.

The issue of confronting climate change is one of the priorities of the Cuban government. In 2017, a State plan was presented for coping with climate change.

This project's name is ´Life Task´, and requires a progressive investment plan for its implementation, which will be executed in the year 2020, (short-term period), in 2030 (medium-term), in 2050 (long-term) and in 2100 (very long-term).
