Lula and a large Brazilian delegation confirm their attendance at the United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP28).

The South American giant will arrive at the event, which will start on November 30 and last until December 12, with the aim of presenting itself as a solutions provider to the world.

This was confirmed by the Minister of Climate Change at the Ministry of the Environment, Ana Toni, and the Minister of Climate, Energy and Environment at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Ambassador Andre Aranha Correa do Lago, to reporters.

They also noted that the country will protect science as a determining factor in public decisions and policies related to global warming.

“Brazil will vigorously defend its commitment to the global goal of increasing temperatures by up to 1.5 degrees Celsius,” Correa do Lago said.

The government will come to COP28 to defend the importance of countries with tropical forests in discussing solutions to the problems of these biomes.

“At the COP we will see a continuation of that discussion that began at the Belem (Brazilian Amazon city) summit and more concrete proposals,” Tony noted.

“Topics such as compensation for forest ecosystem services and maintenance of standing forests will be proposed,” he added.

According to the minister, the Brazilian delegation will present in Dubai projects such as restoring the springs in the Cerrado (Al-Bayoumiya) region, whose investments are estimated at 25 billion euros, and the Climate Fund, managed by the National Economic and Social Development Bank, which will work to present a “major reforestation project.”
