BRICS and Climate

BRICS and Climate

The impact of the actions of the countries that constitute the BRICS goes beyond the scope of the economic sector, reaching, among others, the socio-environmental agenda through issues such as the exploitation of natural resources, land use, the promotion of rights as a crucial part of this agenda, and most of all climate change. Hence the growing need, in recent years, to promote researches and disseminate.

In order to engage this debate and contribute positively to the climate agenda, the BRICS Policy Center and the GIP —Gestão e Interesse Público Pesquisa e Consultoria— have established a partnership aiming at stimulating and strengthening researches and debates between scholars, civil society, government, and other sector of Brazilian society on the subject. This is the context in which the BRICS and Climate project is born.

This project was concluded in 2017 and turned into the Socioambiental Platform Program, integrating its publications, such as RADAR Socioambiental.
