Brazil is exposed to climate change risks that could have dire consequences for millions of its citizens. 

In addition, Brazil has an exceptional opportunity to build a prosperous future by embracing a low-carbon, climate-resilient growth pathway. Building on its green energy mix and natural resource wealth, Brazil could benefit from the global decarbonization trend and reduce its exposure to climate risks by favoring a productivity-driven and diversified growth model, scaling up the use of renewable energy, favoring energy efficiency and resilient development, and curbing deforestation.

The event will also be the launch of the Country Climate and Development Report (CCDR) and A Balancing Act for Brazil’s Amazonian States - An Economic Memorandum. The Brazil CCDR explores policies and options for Brazil to meet its development and climate objectives together. It explores the costs and benefits of an illustrative, but realistic pathway through which Brazil could achieve higher resilience and net-zero emissions by 2050. A Balancing Act for Brazil’s Amazonian States - An Economic Memorandum analyzes how to reconcile development with natural forests in the nine Brazilian states comprising the Amazon.
