Hope for the Amazon?

By Danny Harrington, MD ITS Education Asia


The surprise return to power in Brazil of previous president Lula da Silva has also seen a surprise reprieve for rainforest areas whose future looked doomed under the previous regime. At COP27, Lula said:

“I would like to say to you all that Brazil is back. Brazil is back to resume its ties with the world and to once again fight hunger in the world. To cooperate once again with the poorest countries – above all Africa – to cooperate with technology transfers to build a better future for our peoples.

“We are back. We are back to help build a peaceful world order based on dialogue and multilateralism. The world of today is not the same as the world in 1945.”

As part of this, one of his first announcements was that Germany and Norway will reopen the Amazon fund. He called for COP30 to be held in the Amazon rainforest, and announced that he would be setting up a ministry for Indigenous people.
