The Brazil Climate Center (CBC) is a center for reflection and action (think-and-do tank), knowledge dissemination, elaboration of strategic actions, and engagement of society to combat the effects of climate change.
GOVERNORS FOR CLIMATE
Strictly non-partisan, the CBC acts to influence Brazilian politics and power structures. It develops proposals, projects, strategies and actions, especially through articulation and political incidence at the subnational level and dialogue at the international level, in order to enable the transition to a carbon-neutral economy, through the full implementation of the Paris Agreement and, more specifically, of the Brazilian Nationally Determined Contribution (NDC). In its track record, it has been helping to set sectoral and regional NDC targets, raising its ambitions, building a long-term strategy with the goal of zero net greenhouse gas emissions by the middle of the 21st century, and designing robust adaptation actions at different levels.
Assessment, analysis of relevant data and information, articulation among multiple stakeholders, and dialogue in different national and international spheres are among CBC’s strategic capabilities, contributing to a unique contribution that combines reflection and action, theory and practice.
