Lula Puts Brazil on Greener Path

Brazil’s newly elected president has reiterated his commitment to preserve the Amazon rainforest. Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva secured 50.9% of the vote, beating Jair Bolsonaro. The latter had claimed he would instead increase deforestation, should he be re-elected, building on his track record of weakening the country’s environmental laws and commitments. In comparison, Lula has pledged to establish representation for local Indigenous groups in government, strengthen Brazil’s environmental protection agency, and crack down on illegal deforestation. Lula will be sworn in on 1 January, 2023.
