Ambassador Of Bolivia

Ambassador Sergio Arispe is a lawyer with specialization in Public Policy and Environmental Law. He has represented Bolivia in multiple UN forums (UNFCCC, CBD, and SDGs), participating in various negotiations leading towards the Paris Accord (COP21). He’s also channelled and promoted credit line access from various multilateral financing institutions like IDB and CAF to major infrastructure projects in Bolivia.

Bolivia, in this regard is keenly aware of an existing void in terms of having a true Global Climate Fund, making financing the needs, size and scope of adaptation infrastructure and technology transfer towards developing countries a pending issue.
