Brazil: Senate approves adherence to the Paris Climate Agreement


Brazil’s Senate approved draft legislation last Thursday that establishes Brazil’s adherence to the Climate Agreement that was reached last December at the Paris Summit, according to reports by the news agency of the Brazilian Federal Senate Agência Senado.

Under the Paris Agreement, Brazil’s forecasts point to a 37% reduction of greenhouse gas emissions from 2005 levels, by 2025. This reduction could then increase to 43% by 2030.

Some measures proposed by Brazil are in the field of reforestation. Included among the various initiatives for Brazil to reduce greenhouse gases is also a push to foster the development of renewable energies.

One of the latest programs to be announced in Brazil is the ProGD distributed generation program, which was presented last December. Among the various actions included in the program is the freeing up of funds to promote distributed generation facilities, which are mainly solar PV.
