Environmental Governance in the Amazon
19/6 - 17h BR / 9p.m. UK
Holder of the largest tropical forest in the world, Brazil plays a fundamental role in combating climate change. The country’s leading role in international negotiations and the tireless struggle of traditional Brazilian peoples for the protection of their territories resulted in important advances in preservation. However, environmental governance mechanisms are still insufficient to guarantee the preservation of natural ecosystems. This is evident with the recent increase in deforestation rates and the growing threats to indigenous peoples. Seeking to engage different sectors and promote constructive dialogue, we invite important actors in the Brazilian environmental context to think, together with the public, on how to build an environmentally responsible and socially just Brazil, capable of facing the difficulties of combating climate change in a post-pandemic world.
