Sharm El Sheikh, Egypt, Nov 17 (Prensa Latina) The president-elect of Brazil, Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva, defended today at COP27 global governance to comply with climate-related decisions and commitments.
Lula spoke during the event titled Brazil Climate Action Hub, a group created by civil society organizations to discuss climate actions. In the pronouncement, the founder of the Workers’ Party assured that the UN forums “cannot continue to be endless theoretical discussions” and that often the determinations “are never taken seriously or are never fulfilled.”
Sometimes I have the impression, he stressed, that “decisions must be complied with if one has a global governance body that can decide what to do, because if it depends on the internal discussions of the State, in the National Congress, many things approved on the climate They will not be put into practice.”
The ex-unionist assured that “it is useless to talk about fiscal responsibility, people have to have social responsibility. The expense ceiling was created. And what is the expense ceiling? If one did not think about the interests and maintained the social policies, but putting a ceiling on expenses is taking money from education, health, culture ».
He insisted on having “an inflation target, yes, but we have a growth target. We have to have a commitment to job creation, we have to guarantee that we are going to increase the minimum wage above inflation,” she reiterated.
Within the framework of the United Nations Conference on Climate Change (COP27), which has been in session since November 6 in Egypt, the president-elect will also meet during the day with representatives of the International Forum of Indigenous Peoples/Peoples’ Forum on Climate change.
The mechanical extortionist received the day before in this spa from the governors of the Legal Amazon a document that defends the common agenda for the climate transition.
The so-called Amazon Charter, a common agenda for the climate transition, was read by the governor of the northern state of Pará, Helder Barbalho.
Likewise, Lula defended that climate change and poverty are two inseparable realities that must be fought together and promised stricter punishments against those who threaten the environment and the resources of the Amazon and denounced that the greatest threat to humanity is inequality. .
“There will be no future as long as we continue to dig deep trenches of inequalities between rich and poor,” warned the elected head of state, who defeated ultra-right-leaning president Jair Bolsonaro at the polls on October 30.
