Water and sustainable development in Latin America and the Caribbean

This research aims to discuss, from the perspective of sustainable development, the legal challenges of promoting the sustainable use of water in the region.

Climate Risks and Opportunities in Latin American Cities


Despite being a global problem, climate risks have a different impact on each region, especially placing the population and the Latin American economy in danger due to their particular nature. In the socioeconomic context, climate change exacerbates the disparity in access to food and drinking water, and impacts, in particular, agriculture in productive locations, currently the main economic activity in the region.

Collaboration between the Public and Private Sectors for Climate Resilience in Latin American Cities


It is estimated that, in the next 15 years, more than 70% of the demand for climate-resilient infrastructure will be in urban areas, making explicit the need for innovation and renewal towards smart, inclusive, safe and sustainable cities.

How are municipalities in Latin America managing and reducing greenhouse gas emissions?


Currently, emissions can be explained by activities carried out in Latin America, such as energy production and agricultural activities. On the continent, energy production accounts for 46% of emissions, with the use of fossil sources such as oil and coal. They are followed by activities such as agriculture, livestock, change in land use, deforestation and burning, which total 42% of emissions. Together they total almost all greenhouse gas emissions.

How are municipalities managing their risks and adaptation strategies to climate change in Latin America?


The risks associated with climate change are already occurring throughout the world, revealing the urgency of creating adaptation strategies.

Public policies, academia, communication and digital conversations around the circular economy in Latin America

Public policies, science, communication and digital environments play a fundamental role in the transition from a linear model to a circular one, because they provide evidence for decision-making in the public and private spheres.

Open Series

"In der Wesermarsch, aus aller Welt"

Workshop Moderationstraining

Zum Auftakt des dreijährigen Projektes "In der Wesermarsch, aus aller Welt!' fand am Freitag und Samstag, 18. und 19. August, in Brake ein Workshop über Kommunikationsstrategien statt. Das Herrmann-Ehlers-Bildungsforum Weser-Ems fördert das Projekt und gestaltete den Auftaktworkshop mit dem Projektteam.  Als Referent führte Dr. Thomas Thielen durch das Programm, bei dem es um Interview-Schulungen, Übungen zur Moderation von Gesprächen und operativ aufmerksame Kommunikation ging. 


In dem Projekt geht es um Lebensgeschichten sowohl junger als auch älterer Menschen, die filmisch aufgezeichnet, dokumentiert und öffentlich präsentiert werden. Dabei sollen Generationen in den Dialog treten - für eine vielfältige und offene Gesellschaft. Im ersten Workshop wurde das Projektteam für diese Interviewsituationen geschult. Teilnehmerinnen und Teilnehmer kamen aus der Wesermarsch und umzu, zudem nahmen Schülerinnen und Schüler der Zinzendorfschule  aus Tossens teil. In dem zeitägigen Workshop wurde kreativ in Einzel- und Gruppenarbeit, in Simulationen die Interviewsituation geübt. Nach dem Workshop geht es im Projekt weiter mit ersten Interviews.

Country Reports with a Difference

Research on “Education of people with disabilities” around the world

People with disabilities are also among the most marginalised groups in the education system, and not only in the so-called developing countries. In recent years, it has become clear that education is one of the key prerequisites for sustainable development. Not least, the 2030 Agenda, with its guiding principle of “Leaving no one behind”, calls on us to focus our attention on this issue - also and especially in our work abroad.


What is the situation regarding access to education in the various countries in which we are active? To what extent do people with disabilities have the same access opportunities as non-disabled people? What difficulties do people face, what hurdles do they have to overcome and how can we, as a foundation, contribute to giving people with disabilities equal access to (‘civic’) education and to our programmes?


Our publication series “Country Reports with a Difference” aims to report on the current state of access to education for people with disabilities. Our overseas offices research the situation and developments in various countries. Through our reports, we can raise awareness of the inequalities that unfortunately still too often exist and bring more attention to the issue of inclusion.

Event Reports

The Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung, its educational institutions, centres and foreign offices, offer several thousand events on various subjects each year. We provide up to date and exclusive reports on selected conferences, events and symposia at In addition to a summary of the contents, you can also find additional material such as pictures, speeches, videos or audio clips.
