Supporting Brazil in implementing its national agenda for adaptation to climate change
As of: November 2020
Brazil has adopted a national agenda for adaptation to climate change. Working in cooperation with the Brazilian Ministry of the Environment, the project increases the country’s climate resilience by improving the implementation of the Agenda. In this way, the Ministry of the Environment is strengthened in its coordinating function, e.g with the help of management tools such as the monitoring of adaptation measures. Stakeholders in selected sectors, states and municipalities are also given further training, enabling them to implement regulations, methods and instruments for the mainstreaming of adaptation to climate change and the associated measures. The project also uses awareness-raising measures to promote the adaptation of the private sector and civil society to climate change. The learning experiences gained from the project are ultimately disseminated both nationally and internationally.
