COP20: Roberto Ferdinand, Marcha Mundial Do Clima, Brazil co-ordinator

COP20 (11/12/14) – Ferdinand tells RTCC the Global Climate March or Marcha Mundial Do Clima is organised every year to coincide with the middle of COP. He says the three main objectives of the march are to demand democracy of information, march every year during COP, and to pressure federal, state and municipal governments to make climate legislation and enforce it.

Ferdinand explains that Brazil has generally had a good clean energy matrix, however due to economic problems the country is turning to dirty fuels and practices. Civil society are trying to stop this by engaging with the government and pressuring them to not give money to dirty fuels and invest in renewables.
