The Paris Agreement has entered into force. What is going to happen now? How can Brazil implement, cooperate, and share knowledge and experiences with other strategic players?
The challenge of implementing the NDC seems even more relevant for those countries with a large forest asset. Brazil stands out as an important player and has the great task of discussing how its goals will be implemented.
The Brazilian Coalition on Climate, Forests and Agriculture has built a forum for discussion and co-creation among key players of Brazilian society – civil society, private sector, academia and financial sector – to help in the transition to a low-carbon economy, including solutions and investment opportunities for sustainable agriculture and forestry. We intend to bring together decision and opinion makers from countries that are key in these fields in order to learn and share experiences about the political, technical and financial aspects of the Paris Agreement implementation agenda.
