Amazon on the verge of a new future

12 Nov 2022
Climate Action Stage
Week 1
Luiz In'cio Lula da Silva has just been elected the new president of Brazil, with over 60 million votes. Lula, who was responsible for the 80% reduction of the deforestation of the Amazon in previous mandates, is now committed to fight for zero deforestation and to protect Indigneous peoples' rights, including their ancestral knowledge and the protection of the country's biodiversity as key parts of the country's climate solutions. President Lula will face many challenges to rebuild Brazil's environmental policies, such as a divided country, a Congress dominated by rightwing parties and a profound economic crisis, but has also already started receiving public support from international leaders to work with him on his new green agenda for the country. Join our key speakers to discuss what is at stake and what are the main issues and main opportunities to protect the future of the Amazon forest and of its people in the next coming years.
