Recommendations for PAN LAC Next Steps and Linkages with other Regional Efforts within and Outside Latin America


This document consists of recommendations, next steps and linkages with other regional efforts in Latin America, to reduce short-lived climate pollutants from the brick sector through policies, capacity building, and institutional strengthening for the Policy Advocacy Network for Latin America for Clean Brick Production (the PAN LAC). It is an activity under the Bricks Initiative of the Climate and Clean Air Coalition (CCAC).

The content of this document derives primarily from a Bricks Initiative project proposal submitted to the CCAC in 2015 called Beyond Bricks. Beyond Bricks was conceived  to propose next steps for the evolution of traditional brick sector in Latin America (and other regions). In this context The Center for Human Rights and Environment (CHRE/CEDHA), the Coordinator of the PAN LAC  wrote these recommendations,  and included in the Beyond Bricks proposal the vision and next steps for the PAN LAC. These recommendations take into account and should be considered in conjunction with the other evolving products (deliverables) of the PAN LAC network, developed under this same project cycle, including: Framework Document of the PAN LAC, Regional Strategy of the PAN LAC, Regional Guidelines of the PAN LAC, Compilation of Existing Policy Frameworks, Capacity Building Course for Public Policy on Brick Production.
