Clarissa Lins Participates in the Oxford Energy Forum's COP-26 Special Edition

CEBRI Trustee, Clarissa Lins, and Senior Partner at Catavento Consultoria, Bruna Mascotte, published an article in the special edition of the Oxford Energy Forum, of the Oxford Institute for Energy Studies. Published on the 28th of September, the publication Examining the balance between ambitious pledges and realistics expectations brings a selection of articles from leading energy researchers around the world to the COP-26.

The COP-26 will take place in the first two weeks of November and nearly 200 countries will gather to review their environmental performance since 2015 and set new emissions targets for 2030.

The article by Lins and Mascotte, entitled Leader or Laggard? The Brazilian Energy Perspective on COP-26 and net zero, points to a dichotomy in Brazil's dealing with the climate crisis. Despite Brazil being a leader in renewable energy, with vast natural resources and a robust institutional framework to lead the energy sector, in recent years, it has been portrayed as a laggard in the climate agenda in the international arena.

According to the authors, "Brazil's climate challenge differs from the rest of the world, where energy production and its use is at the root of the climate crisis. Brazil's challenge is strongly linked to land use, more specifically to illegal deforestation and a lack of respect for the rule of law."
