RIO DE JANEIRO, BRAZIL - The federal government ordered the cancellation of Climate Week, a UN regional meeting to discuss climate change, which was to take place from August 19th to 23rd.
The organizers are still to receive an official announcement but are already looking for alternatives to host the meeting in the region.
The Secretary of Sustainability, Innovation, and Resilience of the Bahian capital, André Fraga, lamented the cancellation. "I think it's terrible for the country. This government's perspective on the environment is narrow," he said.
This is the second climate event canceled . . .
