The countries of Central America and the Dominican Republic, members of the Central American Integration System (SICA), are among the countries most affected by climate change worldwide, as they are located in one of the areas most exposed to extreme hydro-meteorological phenomena, which cause strong impacts on livelihoods, social and productive infrastructure, and vital ecosystems.

COP28 is an important opportunity for the SICA region to showcase the important progress that has been made in the region in mitigating and adapting to the effects of climate change through the work of SICA's regional institutions, but also to present with one voice the environmental, economic and social problems that the countries of the region are facing as a result of the effects of climate change.

During COP28, SICA, through its specialized bodies and member countries, will issue a joint communiqué calling for the acceleration of inclusive climate action, deepening support to the most vulnerable countries, and increasing financial commitments to the SICA region. In addition, SICA and strategic partners will host a series of side events on the progress, challenges and prospects of Central America and the Dominican Republic on issues of common interest related to environment and development.
