The World Conference on Climate Change and Renewable Energies on Tuesday opened at the Sheraton Hotel in Santiago.

The Conference, due to be concluded on Oct. 31, was organized by the Chilean government in collaboration with the World Bank, the Latin American Organization of Energy (OLADE) and the United Nations' (UN) programs of Climate Change and Environment.

Addressing the opening ceremony, Chilean Environment Minister Ana Lya Uriarte said Chile has played an active role in helping tackle the challenges of the climate change in recent years.

Uriarte hailed the effect of the Clean Development Mechanism, saying it has created "an opportunity for the developing countries, like ours, to contribute to the global environment."

He also said Chile would compromise if necessary in the world’s collective search for solutions to the global warming. He also stressed the urgency to address the environment issue.

"(Chilean) President Michelle Bachelet has been particularly clear regarding this, before the international community, that climate change is the great ethical cause of the humanity this century, as well as Peace for the past century," the minister said.
