Lula participates as a special guest of the Egyptian Presidency of the UN climate conference, which has been in session since last week.

From his government program, the president re-elected on October 30 has promised zero deforestation, and proposed organizing COP 30 in 2025 in Brazil.

Lula has pointed out, together with the governors of those states, that among the challenges facing the Amazon are the criminal groups active in the area, illegal mining and agribusiness that seeks to extend the agricultural frontier to the detriment of the forest.

The average annual deforestation in the Amazon, of which Brazil concentrates 60 percent of the total area, increased by 75 percent over the previous decade during the term of Jair Bolsonaro.

In his speech at the COP27 climate summit, Lula mentioned: “There are not two Brazils, nor two planets Earth. We need more empathy and more trust between peoples.”

“Overcome and go beyond immediate national interests, in order to collectively weave a new international order that reflects the needs of the present and the future,” he said.

I received today #COP27 The Amazon Charter, a common agenda for the climate transition, two governors of the Legal Amazon. Consider how we govern to take care of the environment together, building integrated policies with states and municipalities.
