By | October 06, 2009
Fourteen Brazilian organizations representing the agribusiness, planted forests and bioenergy sectors recently announced the creation of the Brazilian Climate Alliance. The group's goal is to contribute solid proposals for the negotiations related to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change. The group stresses that Brazil, with more than 40 percent of its makeup originating from renewable sources, should play a leading role in global climate discussions. The Alliance's position paper highlights the global nature of the challenges linked to climate change as a key factor for organizations to unite behind a single effort.
