¿Cómo adaptarse a la realidad del cambio climático?

El cambio climático es una realidad  que influye en la actividad económica de las empresas, sin importar a cual sector de la economía pertenezca. En Perú por ejemplo las inundaciones del 2010 afectaron fuertemente a los habitantes de Cusco y al turismo, varios turistas tuvieron que ser evacuados de la zona de Machu Picchu y durante varios meses la zona Arqueológica permaneció cerrada afectando severamente la economía de Cuzco.

La realidad es que el cambio climático ya no es una teoría sobre el calentamiento global y algo que va a pasar.

A critical time to support infrastructure development

 


On June 26, Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao concluded his tour of Latin America by offering a US$10 billion loan program for infrastructure projects in the region. A commitment of this size will undoubtedly have wide ranging benefits for productivity and growth, although when one compares the size of the pledge to the region’s estimated $200 to $250 billion infrastructure gap, it’s clear that even more needs to be done to meet peoples’ needs.  
 
One way to fill the gap is through public-private partnerships or “PPPs,” long-term contracts between a public-sector body and a private-sector entity for the design, construction operation and maintenance of public infrastructure.
