Among the most important results is the fact that Brazilian society has mobilized to participate in COP 27
The Brazilian Climate Change Conference (CBMC) took place in 2022 in a hybrid format, both online and in-person. After the Niterói chapter, in May, it was the turn of the capital of Pernambuco, Recife, to host the event in August. This year, the activities of the CBMC are based on the narrative axis “Climate emergency and vulnerability: impacts and solutions.” This seeks a comprehensive dialogue with the international agenda, with the new publication of the sixth report of the IPCC and a greater alignment with COP 27, the first to be held in African territory.
“It is very interesting to see the mobilization of the public at the Conference in Recife. Both the auditorium and the activity rooms were full. The actors have been missing face-to-face events. The technical visit with the coordinators of the CBMC was excellent. A differential of this edition was meeting with public managers from the Port of Suape and asking practical questions of importance to the climate agenda, such as about the hydrogen plants in the region. The most positive result of this conference was to see how Brazilian society has already mobilized to participate in COP27 in Egypt,” explains Marina Marçal, the coordinator of the Climate Policy portfolio of iCS.
