Supporting Brazil in implementing its national agenda for adaptation to climate change
As of: September 2021
Brazil has adopted a national agenda for adaptation to the consequences of climate change. The project supports the country in the effective implementation of the agenda and strengthens the coordination function of the Brazilian Ministry of Environment, for example with the help of management tools such as the monitoring of adaptation measures. Secondly, it educates key actors in selected sectors, states and municipalities. This enables them to implement regulations and instruments for mainstreaming adaptation to climate change impacts. In addition, the project promotes the adaptation of the private sector and civil society to climate change through awareness-raising activities. The project's learning experiences are disseminated both nationally and internationally.
