The World Conference of Peoples on Climate Change will be held for the second time in the municipality of Tiquipaya, were the first event was held in 2010.

In this opportunity, the City of the Flowers, as it is called, will have the opportunity to host thousands of visitors who will establish decisions for a better care and preservation of life in Mother Earth.

Organizers also reported that the local delegation will present a plan to adapt to climate change, with the objective of approving it in the international event and later submit it to the UN Conference on Climate Change in Paris, France November 30 - December 11.

The referred plan will praise the importance of water as an essential resource in the adaptation to climate change, but also for life survival on the planet.
