Brazil is essential to combatting climate change and biodiversity loss.

60% of the world’s largest tropical rainforest is in Brazil. Home to one in every ten of the world’s species of plants and animals, the Brazilian Amazon produces 20% of the world’s oxygen and 16% of its freshwater.

But in the past fifty years, deforestation has claimed one-fifth of forest cover in Brazil. Protecting and restoring Brazilian ecosystems – and reducing the country’s emissions in the process – is essential for regenerating our planet.

The Global Returns Project (GRP) selects and assesses a portfolio of best-in-class climate and nature charities. On 11 July GRP hosted a webinar The Power of Climate Charities: Spotlight on Brazil. The webinar showcased diverse and complementary strategies a number of charities – including Global Canopy – have adopted to tackle the Climate Crisis in Brazil.

This event was the first in a new series from GRP highlighting GRP’s portfolio’s unique ability to protect and regenerate criticially important environments by funding multiple approaches.
