Who We Are

Who We Are

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.

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.

History

The Brazil Center on Climate (CBC) was founded in 2015 under the leadership of Alfredo Sirkis. Since then, it has been working intensively on the production of knowledge about climate change and on the incidence on public policies that can provide adaptation and mitigation, besides causing a positive impact for the populations most affected by the climate crisis. Check out a little more of our history and the main milestones of our performance, which includes events, launching of studies and books, and participation in international conferences that define the directions of the fight for climate change on the planet.

From 2016 to 2019 he was the Executive Coordinator of the Brazilian Climate Change Forum, during which time he organized the campaign
Ratify Now!
which achieved the ratification of the Paris Agreement in record time by the Brazilian government.
