Brazilian elections may have little impact on its National Congress environmental agenda

, ,

Most Brazilian political parties have no clear position regarding the importance of climate change or environmental protection. Political coalitions and parties will not develop an environmental agenda alone, and changing this depends on the ability of forces outside the National Congress to pressure for the explicit inclusion of environment concerns in political debate.Unfortunately, upcoming presidential elections are unlikely to change this scenario. If Brazil is not able to change its National Congress, sustainability will continue to be treated as an accessory to development.
