At a Glance
The South America Regional Mission Environmental Program serves Brazil, Colombia, Ecuador, and Peru.
Most of Colombia’s population resides in the elevated Andes where water shortages and land degradation exist and in the coastal areas where sea level rise and floods threaten human settlements and economic activities. These climate and weather events can damage irrigated agriculture, human health, sectors such as hydropower that rely on a consistent water supply, and sea level rise in major cities that rely on tourism. Colombia’s greenhouse gas emissions have previously been dominated by the energy sector, followed by agriculture, land-use change and forestry, waste, and industrial processes.
