We expect Brazil`s greenhouse gas emissions to fall by about 4% in 2020, excluding UTCATF, from 2019 levels. Social isolation measures have led to a reduction in the burning of fossil fuels for transport and electricity generation and a decline in industrial activity in the second quarter of 2020. However, agricultural emissions will continue to rise as fewer livestock will be sent for slaughter. In this scenario, emissions in the energy and industrial sectors decline during the coVID-19 economic recession, before reviving their growing trend and reaching the 2018 level by 2026. Meanwhile, emissions in the agricultural sector and UTCATF are expected to continue to rise until at least 2030. The government`s current policy on reducing emissions growth remains a major shortcoming and its response to the COVID 19 pandemic has not been consistent with a green recovery.

Civil society is also contributing to the fight against climate change by ensuring transparency in the implementation of Brazil`s NDCs and by supporting efforts to raise the level of national policies over time, as in the case of the Climate Observatory and the Brazilian Coalition for Climate, Forests and Agriculture. Brazil is still under the tone of COVID-19; This is why its economic recovery is mainly in the future. Early indications are that the Bolsonaro administration has instead tried to use the pandemic to speed up – and divert attention – from the withdrawal of environmental legislation. For example, legislators have recently attempted to use the expedited legislative procedure for COVID 19 measures to authorize highly controversial property rights for illegally deforested land.
Meanwhile, environmental officers were asked to isolate themselves in their homes. At the same time, Brazilian cities, states and non-state actors are setting CO2 emission reduction targets that include clean growth, and civil society is committed to increasing transparency, participation and ambition in national climate policies. To achieve emissions and rapidly reduce the volumes required by the Paris Agreement, Brazil must reverse the current trend of climate policy mitigation by maintaining and strengthening the implementation of forest policies and accelerating climate actions in other sectors, including reversing current fossil fuel development plans.
