On April 22nd, at the UN headquarters in New York, President Dilma Rousseff signed the Paris Agreement, which was sent to the Brazilian Congress for ratification. The Paris Agreement is a global effort to reduce emissions of greenhouse gases and limit the risks and effects of global warming. Thus, the document establishes that the average increase in global temperature cannot exceed 2°C by 2100 compared to pre-industrial levels – with efforts to limit the increase to 1.5°C.
