With the presence of the Ministers of Livestock, Agriculture and Fisheries, Ing. Agr. Tabaré Aguerre and Housing, Spatial Planning and Environment, Arq. Francisco Beltrame, with the director of Gabriel Pisciottano Uruguayan Institute of Meteorology, Ing. And Director of Environmental and Occupational Health, Ministry of Public Health, Dr. Carmen Ciganda is performed the opening of the 4th International Conference on Climate Services, which took place in Montevideo from 10 to 12 December.

Besides the authorities, involved 170 experts from 31 countries during the three days as the main topic discussed information systems for decision making, and a number of issues such as health, water, disasters, grazing land management and evaluation of services climate.

“We are going life on our capacity to generate adaptation to existing climate variability and increased frequency of extreme events predicted by the effects of climate change.” With this statement began her presentation Tabaré Aguerre.

Aguerre outlined the pillars of the so-called “Uruguay Agrointeligente” with the objectives and the role played by the National Agricultural Research for the care of livestock, soil, pasture, forest, forestry, implementation of financial security by climate indices, together with the intensification of water use in production processes.

In this regard, said that the two keys are mitigation and adaptation to achieve a productive, social and economic development.

He also stated that one should not spend another minute trying to imagine what the climate in the next eighty, “but make every effort to improve the adaptive capacity to climate variability” through management of useful information in real time and training of human and technological resources.

The minister recalled that 25% of the wealth generated in Uruguay -evidenciada in the crude product Internal- is generated directly by agricultural and agro-industrial activities.

Meanwhile, said that in the last ten years quadrupled the value of exports of goods and agro-industrial products account for 78% of total exports.

“Agricultural activity is crucial to the national economy and climate is crucial for farming,” said Tabaré Aguerre.

“The world can not think that agriculture will reduce its greenhouse gas emissions in absolute terms, but must develop an agriculture in which science and technology for efficient production processes have completed reducing emissions per unit of product is incorporated” he emphasized.

In his presentation he showed examples of how a food basket belonging to a typical European family can offer our country competitive, and sustainable differential.

“Our main asset is the number of hours of light and radiant energy incident on pasture with the addition of water in the process. All this requires the invaluable contribution of everything related to climate services, so the importance of the conference, “the Minister of Livestock.

The Minister of Housing, Francisco Beltrame, said the launch of the National System Response to Climate Change and Variability, the Early Warning System Flood, the search for renewable energy and flood risk mapping with hydrological information and relocation homes are achievements of the current administration regarding management, planning and decision-making on climate change.

“Everyone is risk reduction policy aimed at improving quality of life of society requires more and better institutional climate information,” he said.

For its part, the director of the Uruguayan Institute of Meteorology, Gabriel Pisciottano, described the legal framework for the implementation of the agency force since 2013 and stated that research and climate observation has a history of 119 years.4th INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON CLIMATE SERVICES
