Decree No. 87 creates the Advisory Council on Climate Change and Agriculture
This Decree establishes the Advisory Council on Climate Change and Agriculture, with the objective to support the definition of aspects and priorities for climate change adaptation programs in the agricultural and forestry sectors, as well as in the determination of mitigation measures that correspond.
The Council should take into account that climate change will have effects on the productivity of national agriculture, conditioning the geographical location of crops and their yields, which makes it necessary to initiate a program of adaptation of agriculture to climate change. Also, that the productive activities of these sectors generate greenhouse gas emissions, which can be reduced or compensated.
