The expectation of NGOs, governors of states in the Amazon, and even Brazilian diplomacy in this Climate COP is not regarding the international meetings, but in the gestures coming from within: the redirecting of climate policy under Lula's presidency.
With a fragmented representation, the country has three pavilions at the COP: one official, another for NGOs, and a third, unprecedented, formed by the governors of the Consórcio da Amazônia Legal ( Legal Amazon's Consortium)
Although they seem to present three Brazils to the world, they share the common expectation that the rescue of climate policy by the federal government will recover internal and external dialogue on the climate agenda.
Lula should attend the COP in the second week of the conference, which began this Sunday (6th) and runs until the 18th. For civil society organizations, the opportunity is to reopen the dialogue with the Brazilian federal government.
