La contribution du Brésil à la COP21 : l'agrobusiness du futur

Abstract : Assessing Brazil’s contribution (INDC) to the United Nations convention on climate change to COP21, we present a study showing how the country affirms both its sovereignty and dual posture as a model learner and a leader in the international arena. The decline in deforestation in the Amazon rain-forest has allowed Brazil to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions while masking the increase of emissions in all other sectors. While not proposing an energy transition, the contribution made every effort to follow an « Agribusiness of the future » without undermining the political model based on the export of agricultural commodities. Here we are studying Brazil’s contribution as an illustration of its national political model in response to the problem represented by global warning.
