The lost decade of Brazilian emissions: what 10 years of annual estimates made by civil society reveal
November 9, 2022 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am UTC+2
- This event has passed.
Brazil is the 6th largest emitter of GHG in the world and has been on a trajectory of increasing emissions in the last decade, with the last years being the ones with the highest growth. Critical reflection on this lost decade is urgently needed to realign the country with the goals of the Paris Agreement.
Data from the first civil society initiative to produce annual GHG emission estimates will be presented, the SEEG, which is now 10 years old. SEEGMetane will also be presented, which analyzed scenarios for projected emissions of this gas up to 2030 and proposed a goal for Brazil to contribute to the Global Methane Commitment.
