Politica por inteiro

Tracking and Analysis of Brazilian environmental and climate policy

In face of the complex system of decisions, changes and actions that the Brazilian environmental policy is currently inserted, it is with great satisfaction that the Konrad Adenauer Foundation in Brazil announces its support for the "Política por Inteiro" project. "Política por Inteiro" aims to provide a reliable, recurring and comparable data base on public policy signals and propositions in the environmental area in a "friendly" format and with credible data, and that creates a common "memory" about national decisions. Through the monitoring of government actions and rhetoric, systematic analysis of the situation and associated risks and the production and dissemination of information, it is intended to provide a tool to identify signals, interpret trends and consolidate them in an aggregate manner, using data science to inform citizens, advocacy networks and decision makers themselves. Each month an outlook is produced with the signals detected in the monitoring and monthly online events are also carried out to analyze the situation. The November outlook is available at the following link and the event about it is available on the "Política por Inteiro" YouTube channel (https://www.youtube.com/politicaporinteiro) - as well as the next ones to be held.

Local Action Guide

Produced from a partnership between KAS Brazil and Engajamundo, the Local Action Guide helps Brazilian youth to recognize themselves as agents of change, especially at the local level, offering tools and methodologies to engage in transforming the realities of their communities and surroundings. Despite being an invitation to youth, the guide is a great material for anyone who wants to be more involved in local politics.

Kommunalwahlen in Brasilien – Rückschlag für den Bolsonarismus

In 5570 brasilianischen Städten und Gemeinden fand am vergangenen Sonntag die erste Runde der Kommunalwahlen statt, bei denen 150 Millionen Brasilianer dazu aufgerufen waren, neue Bürgermeister und Stadtverordnete zu wählen. Bei einer in Corona-Zeiten erwartet niedrigen Wahlbeteiligung haben die Kandidaten der etablierten Parteien der Mitte überwiegend gut abgeschnitten, während der Urnengang für Staatspräsident Bolsonaro zwar einen beachtlichen Dämpfer bedeutet, jedoch als Stimmungstest hinsichtlich der Präsidentschaftswahl 2022 nur bedingt Aussagekraft besitzt.

Política por inteiro - Analysis

Monitoring of Brazilian environmental policy

The "Política por Inteiro" project, with support from the Konrad Adenauer Foundation in Brazil, launches another outlook of the signals detected in the monitoring of Brazilian environmental policy. "Política por Inteiro" aims to provide a reliable, recurring and comparable data base on public policy signals and propositions in the environmental area in a "friendly" format and with credible data, and that creates a common "memory" about national decisions. Through the monitoring of government actions and rhetoric, systematic analysis of the situation and associated risks and the production and dissemination of information, it is intended to provide a tool to identify signals, interpret trends and consolidate them in an aggregate manner, using data science to inform citizens, advocacy networks and decision makers themselves. Every month there are also online events for the analysis of the situation. The October outlook is available at the link below and the Conjunturas e Riscos event is available on the "Política por Inteiro" channel on YouTube (https://www.youtube.com/politicaporinteiro) - as well as the next ones to be held.

Neuorientierung oder Kontinuität?

Die Auswirkungen der US-Wahl auf Brasiliens Außenpolitik

Angesichts des Wahlsieges von Joe Biden in den USA steht die Regierung Bolsonaro vor der Frage, ob eine strategische Neuausrichtung der brasilianischen Außenpolitik erforderlich ist. Der wachsende Einfluss Chinas in Lateinamerika dürfte auch in Zukunft ein Schlüsselthema für beide Seiten sein und bietet zweifelsohne Kooperationspotenzial. Bei Klima- und Umweltfragen könnte Brasilien eine zunehmende Isolation auf dem internationalen Parkett drohen, wenn keine Kompromisse gefunden werden.

Brasilianische Umweltpolitik im Licht von Wahlen und Handelsfragen

Krise im Pantanal und Brände im Amazonasgebiet

Während der anhaltende Anstieg der Entwaldung in der ersten Jahreshälfte angesichts der alles überlagernden Corona-Krise kaum registriert wurde, führen alarmierende Nachrichten über Brände im Amazonasgebiet und dem Pantanal der brasilianischen Öffentlichkeit nun wieder schonungslos die Dringlichkeit der Umweltproblematik vor Augen. Auch auf dem internationalen Parkett – insbesondere im Hinblick auf das EU-Mercosul-Handelsabkommen, aber selbst im US-Präsidentschaftswahlkampf – spielt der Erhalt des brasilianischen Regenwalds eine Rolle.
