Globally, 97% of CO2 emissions are generated by "developed" countries, and it seems that they are not willing to reduce them because in this globalized world, markets are the center of attention and the priority. The development model of many Western countries has been exported as a recipe for escaping poverty. From this hegemonic vision, Latin America has been considered an emerging economy and agriculture has not escaped the concept of globalization and standardization due to the green revolution model that has prevailed in recent decades with promises such as alleviating world hunger.
