El avance de los temas ambientales y sociales en la política pública requiere del apoyo del más alto nivel político. No obstante, la experiencia de América Latina ha demostrado que muchas veces cuando un tema adquiere gran visibilidad en la agenda de un presidente, el próximo gobierno – aun siendo del mismo partido – le resta prominencia o cambia el enfoque, ya sea por motivos ideológicos o meramente para imprimir su sello propio.
