Cadernos do OIMC N.10: The results of COP 28 and the road to Belem

The Interdisciplinary Observatory on Climate Change is proud to launch the tenth edition of the Cadernos do OIMC series; the report Entre a poeira e a fumaça: Os resultados da COP 28 e a trilha para Belém (Between dust and smoke: The results of COP 28 and the trail to Belém). This issue marks the beginning of a series of publications linked to the Pan-Amazonian Governance, Climate Change and Sustainable Development project, developed by the Observatory in partnership with the Laboratory for Geopolitical Studies of the Legal Amazon (LEGAL) and the South American Political Observatory (OPSA).

Penned by our Scientific Initiation researchers Arthur Vargas FaciniJúlia Nascimento SantosMatheus Declie and Sérgio Mecena Neto, this report details the main themes and results of the 28th Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (COP 28) – held at the end of 2023 in Dubai, United Arab Emirates – with an emphasis on issues linked to the Amazon region and Brazil’s role, and analyses the actors and practices that sought to obstruct the conference from achieving more ambitious results on the climate agenda.

Developed with the support of the Rio de Janeiro State Research Foundation (FAPERJ) as part of the Amazon+10 Initiative call for proposals, the Pan-Amazon Governance, Climate Change and Sustainable Development project is dedicated to investigating the perceptions, interests and actions of the different political players who have an impact on sustainable development in the region. In addition to the reports dedicated to the South American Amazon countries (published by OPSA) and the Brazilian states in the region (published by LEGAL), the series published by the OIMC aims to analyse the agendas and interests that extra-regional powers, intergovernmental organisations and multilateral forums express in relation to the Pan-Amazon.
