Is a Decolonial Climate Foreign Policy Even Possible? Perspectives From the Brazilian Amazon

12. Juni 2023 (15:00 - 16:00)

Veranstaltungsort: online, online, online,

The latest UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) report acknowledged that colonisation is one of the drivers of the climate crisis. As a result, the decolonisation perspective is central to the global response to climate change. Colonial legacies and unequal power relations between countries continue to shape international cooperation and influence how climate policy is conducted.

Although Germany’s commitment is recognized by a wide variety of actors in Brazil, there is still a certain mistrust of the actual interests of these projects and initiatives. How can Germany strengthen its partnership with Brazil regarding environmental and climate issues? How is this perceived by local stakeholders and activists? What would a decolonised approach in this international cooperation look like?
