By attending the COP27, Lula legitimized his interest in the preservation of the Amazon as well as in the protection of indigenous peoples. Moreover, he stressed that with his victory also “the commitment to confront climate change with determination” . In his speech, the president highlighted the world’s hurry to find solutions for our planet that is being exhausted every day, and the importance of the countries to unite among themselves otherwise we are doomed to fail.
While Lula awaits his inauguration, his transition team worked to ensure that he takes office knowing all the information about the Federal Government, the Public Administration, ongoing projects and programs, and other issues. The members of the team were selected by the elected president and were responsible for working on specific themes of the government. A notable difference between the transition team of the current government and the future one was precisely the presence of the Technical Group for the Environment . The composition of the team also brightened the mood. With several academic and environmentalist members, hope has also returned to those who are seriously dedicated to environmental causes in Brazil.
