#ECLAC Executive Secretary, Alicia Bárcena, called today for a new narrative on #internationalcooperation for Latin American and Caribbean #development around the #2030Agenda, during a seminar organized by the #EuropeanUnion in #Panama.

In her remarks to the audience composed of #EU ambassadors to the region, high-level officials of diverse European institutions, and representatives of numerous regional and international organizations, of both civil society and the private sector, Bárcena pointed out that, in light of the deep tectonic shifts currently defining #globalization – the #technologicalrevolution, the future of #work in view of #robotics, #climatechange, geopolitical changes, the crisis of mega-agreements, #migration and the aging #population – it is urgent that we seek new patterns of production and consumption. #DEVCO http://bit.ly/2y5b894

In celebration of #WorldEnvironmentDay 2018, #ECLAC called on the Latin American and Caribbean States to sign the Regional Agreement on Access to Information, Public Participation and Justice in Environmental Matters in Latin America and the Caribbean, adopted this past March 4 in Escazú, Costa Rica.

The #EscazúAgreement will be open for the 33 countries of the region to sign on September 27, 2018 at United Nations Headquarters in New York, coinciding with the opening of the #UN #GeneralAssembly annual debate. From that point on, it will be subject to ratification by the countries that have signed it. It will require 11 States Party to enter into force.

Also, today it became part of #InforMEA, an online platform for all Multilateral Environmental Agreements, both regional and global.

“Inequality is inefficient, not only because it is an ethical failure but also because it is a failure from an economic point of view. We must overcome the culture of privilege that reigns in Latin America and the Caribbean,” #ECLAC Executive Secretary Alicia Bárcena said this week.

“We have presented evidence that #equality, #democracy and a thriving #economy are complementary forces and that they are mutually supportive,” she added. Want to know more about this? Check the document The Inefficiency of Inequality that #ECLAC launched during its most recent session last month. Download it here: http://bit.ly/2KLU22t #equalityLAC

The throughput of containerized cargo in the ports of Latin America and the Caribbean rose around 6.1% in 2017, according to data released today by #ECLAC. This average figure points to a rebound versus the last three years, when low or negative growth rates in container throughput were recorded at a regional level.

According to the #portsranking published by the United Nations organization, this data confirms the improvement in Latin America and the Caribbean’s foreign trade in 2017 as well as the heterogeneity of growth rates in activity among the region’s ports.
