Changhua Wu meets Brazillian politician to discuss BRIC's clean revolution
- 09 November 2012
The Climate Group's China Office Director Changhua Wu met with Brazilian Congressman Alfredo Sirkis this week in the sideline of events organized by the Chinese Policy Research Centre for the Environment and The Economy.
Changhua and Sirkis exchanged views on how Brazil and China can lead a global Clean Revolution and how the two countries can play a bigger role in both driving forward the UN climate negotiations process and making climate change a permanent feature in the agenda of major international platforms such as the G20 or the UN Security Council - in particular with regards to issues such as the financing of climate adaptation and others.
The Climate Group launched its Clean Revolution campaign during the Earth Summit in Rio last June. It is currently exploring ways of expanding its presence in other members of the BRICS group apart from China and India - with Brazil being a key priority.
