Paris Convention on Climate Change
The Paris Agreement under the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change was promulgated through Decree 9,073 of June 5, 2017.
The agreement aims to strengthen the global response to the threat of climate change in the context of sustainable development and poverty eradication efforts, with developing countries receiving financial and technical support to achieve the goals.
Through this Convention, Brazil and the other signatories assume, among others, international commitments to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
With the accession of almost 200 countries to the Paris Agreement, it is expected that its implementation will represent a long-term progression, with the effective reduction of the negative impacts of climate change and the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions.
