The Vice Minister valued the contribution of the work of the SGT-MRV and the exchange instances that enrich the development of climate policies of the Pacific Alliance countries.
Likewise, taking advantage of the visit to MINAM, the SGT-MRV invited a Chilean expert to share his experience with the technical team of the Directorate- General of Climate Change and Desertification, regarding the challenges in the design and implementation of the first green taxes in Chile (including a carbon tax) and the compensation system that should start operating at the beginning of 2023. This exchange was leaded by the economist Rodrigo Bórquez, who was working directly on both instruments as part of the Ministry team of the Chilean Environment.
