To emerge from its deep recession, Brazil urgently needs to develop strategies and policies that promote growth and reduce poverty, according to the authors of this report. At the same time, the nation’s Nationally Determined Contribution (NDC) within the Paris Agreement represents an ambitious commitment to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 2030. The authors present evidence for policymakers and stakeholder as they look at three sectors that are critical to creating a greener future for the nation: land use, energy and transportation.
