The UNDP Regional Bureau for Latin America & the Caribbean (LAC) has expanded on the global project, "Capacity Development for Policy Makers to Address Climate Change" in the LAC region to provide technical support to national policy makers and its Country Offices and strengthen capacity on budgetary issues related to the post-2012 climate regime.

In close collaboration with UNDP Headquarters, the Regional Bureau for Latin America & Caribbean built upon these activities at the global level to initiate a comprehensive regional programme - Climate Policy 2012 - funded by the government of Spain and UNDP track funds. Launched in 2009, this programme is tailored around the specific needs of Ibero-American countries facing the opportunities and challenges of the post-2012 global climate regime.

The contribution of the Spanish government was based on the principle that all nineteen countries in Ibero-America will benefit from the CLIMATE POLICY 2012 Programme: Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Cuba, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Mexico, Nicaragua, Panama, Paraguay, Peru, Uruguay, and Venezuela.
