IRI Brazil Publishes Editorial For The Amazon Summit

IRI Brazil coordinated the preparation and placement of an editorial signed by an indigenous leader – Kleber Karipuna (APIB), a scientist – Carlos Nobre (Scientific Panel of the Amazon) and a religious leader – Pastor Romi Bencke (CONIC) to issue key messages from IRI around the Amazon Summit.  The editorial read, in part, “The importance of this event is clear, as is the responsibility of the governments that will be there…our countries must tell themselves and the world what they are going to do with the largest and richest forest on the planet. They must move away from populist talk and engage in a high-level dialogue with the depth needed to respond to the climate crisis.” The editorial was published on Brazil’s main news portal, UOL, on the opening day of the Presidential segment of the Summit. The portal has 120 million followers. Read the article here.
