ABOUT


Climate Change, We’re All Responsible is an event organized by the European Union Delegation in Brazil, WWF-Brazil and Fundação Planetário da Cidade do Rio de Janeiro (city government of Rio de Janeiro), in partnership with the Environmental Department, Member-states of the EU in Brazil and their cultural institutions.



Today we are dealing with the challenge of reducing greenhouse gases in the context of an increasing world population. We are facing a task that is essential to the survival of the planet, and we are at a crucial moment, one in which we need to change our habits.



Over eight days, 20 organizations from Brazil and Europe will shed light on good, reproducible practices for the individual citizen, communities, civil societies, public administration, companies and artistic groups. The objective of the event is to contribute to efforts to contain or mitigate climate change, presenting solutions and discussions on the following topics: water, energy, solid waste, land use and agriculture, urbanization and urban mobility, security and climate. The exposition, which takes place from October 30 to November 6, is open to the public and free of charge.



The event will also include a scientific conference, closed to the public, with specialists from Brazil and the European Union.

CAUSES AND CONSEQUENCES OF CHANGES TO THE CLIMATE


Human beings are influencing the climate and Earth’s temperature more and more, principally through burning fossil fuels, deforestation and raising livestock. These factors are responsible for adding an enormous quantity of greenhouse gases on top of the naturally-occurring gases.

Greenhouse gases

Some of the atmospheric gases act like the glass of a greenhouse, which traps the sun’s heat and won’t let it escape from the greenhouse. Many of these gases occur naturally, but human activity is increasing the concentration of several of the gases in the atmosphere, in particular: Carbon dioxide (CO2), Methane, Nitrous Oxide and “F-gases.” 

CO2 is the greenhouse gas most commonly produced by human activity and is responsible for 64% of man-caused global warming. Its concentration in the atmosphere is currently 40% higher than during the beginning of industrialization. Other greenhouse gases are emitted in smaller quantities, but they trap heat much more efficiently than CO2 – in some cases they are thousands of times stronger. Methane is responsible for 17% of man-caused global warming and nitrous oxide for 6%.

Causes for the increase of emissions

  • The burning of coal, petroleum and gas produce carbon dioxide (CO2) and nitrous oxide.

  • Deforestation. Trees help to regulate the climate by absorbing CO2 from the atmosphere. Thus, when trees are chopped down this beneficial effect is lost and the carbon stored in trees is released into the atmosphere, increasing the greenhouse effect.

  • The growth of livestock. Cows and sheep produce great quantities of methane when they digest food.

  • Fertilizers that contain nitrogen produce nitrogen oxide emissions.

  • Fluorinated gases, or “F-gases,” produce a very strong heating effect, up to 23 thousand times greater than CO2. Currently, they are being released in decreasing quantities.

Global warming

The current average global temperature is 0,85 ºC higher than what it was at the end of the 19th century. Each of the last three decades have been hotter than the previous decades. Scientists that study the world’s climate believe human activities are, certainly, the principal cause of the heating observed since the middle of the 20th century. 

An increase of 2°C in temperature in comparison to what was recorded in the pre-industrial era is seen by scientists as the limit before amplifying the risks of dangerous changes and, possibly, world catastrophes. For this reason, the international community recognizes the need to maintain warming below 2°C.

And what can we do to combat global warming?

There are various ways to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and the impacts of global warming. Reducing deforestation, investing in reforestation and the conservation of natural areas, incentivizing the use of non-conventional renewable energies (solar, wind, biomass and small hydroelectric), choosing to use biofuels (ethanol, biodiesel) to fossil fuels (gasoline, diesel oil), investing in consumer energy reduction and efficient energy use, reducing, reusing, and recycling materials, investing in low-carbon technology and creating better public transportation with low greenhouse gas emissions are some of the possibilities. And these methods can be established through national and international climate policies.



SUPPORTERS’ RELATIONSHIPS WITH THE TOPIC OF CLIMATE CHANGE


European Union

The European Union has been actively involved in international efforts to combat changes to our climate, in addition to having robust internal policies related to the subject. In Europe, a package of comprehensive policy measures to reduce greenhouse gas emissions was introduced with the European Climate Change Programme. Since then, each of the EU Member-States put into practice their own internal actions, based on the ECCP.

In 1991, the European Commission created their first community strategy to limit CO2 emissions and increase energy efficiency. The document included instructions to promote the generation of energy from renewable sources, a voluntary commitment by automotive manufacturers to reduce CO2 emissions by 25% and proposals related to energy taxation.

Currently, the efforts of the European Commission to combat climate change in member countries and internationally are led by the Director General of Climate Action (DG Climate). The organization creates and puts into practice climate policies and strategies, leads international negotiations about the climate, conducts the EU Emissions Trading System, monitors the emissions of member countries and promotes low-carbon technologies and measurements of adoption. The objective of these initiatives is to create a system to help the European Union reach the established goals for 2020 and 2030, which are: reduction of 20% (in 2020) and 40% (in 2030) of greenhouse gas emissions (compared to 1990), ensure that 20% (2020) and 27% (2030) of the European Union’s energy is from renewable sources and increase energy efficiency by 20% (2020) and 27% (2030).

Rio de Janeiro city government

The city of Rio de Janeiro was chosen to host the event Climate, We Are All Responsible because of its history in conducting large discussions related to the theme of sustainability. It held Rio-92, as well as Rio+20, United Nations conferences about sustainable development. 

Further, the city of Rio de Janeiro was one of the first cities in the country to create a Municipal Policy of Climate Change and Sustainable Development, establishing goals to reduce greenhouse gas emissions in the coming years: 8% by 2012, 16% by 2016 and 20% by 2020, compared to emissions recorded in 2005 by the Greenhouse Gas Inventory taken by SMAC in partnership with COPPE. Such goals will be properly measured through inputs into the operating system of the monitoring of greenhouse gases in 2012. 

Rio de Janeiro also created the Rio de Janeiro Forum for Climate Change and Sustainable Development, made up of representatives from various areas of the government, private initiatives and civil society, whose objective is to contribute in the search for viable solutions for adoption through public policies aiming to reduce and combat the effects of climate change on the city. The city also has a Metropolitan Region Vulnerability Map, created by the Municipal Environmental Secretary (SMAC), in partnership with the National Institute of Space Research (INPE). The initiative identifies the physical impacts and their respective socio-economic vulnerabilities as well as the impacts on natural systems.

WWF-Brasil

WWF-Brazil is a Brazilian non-governmental organization dedicated to the conservation of nature in order to harmonize human activity with preservation of biodiversity and to promote the rational use of natural resources to benefit citizen’s today and for future generations. Created in 1996 and based in Brasília, the organization develops projects throughout the country and connects Brazil to the WWF Network, the largest independent natural conservation group, with operations in more than 100 countries and support from more than 5 million people, including associations and volunteers. 

Climate-wise, the objective of WWF-Brazil is to promote a low-carbon, inclusive and equitable economy by 2050 that ensures climate security and the quality of life for the Brazilian population. The organization supports a new international agreement related to the climate, which should be fair and efficient; promote efficient energy and alternative renewable energy (wind, solar and biomass); contribute to the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions created by deforestation; promote low-carbon solutions for different segments of the economy, principally the most intensive segments; and develop strategies to adapt to and mitigate the climate changes, with a focus on the most vulnerable populations and ecosystems.
