Brazil's role in the global green agenda, potentials and challenges

Brazil, with its vast biodiversity and natural resources, plays a crucial role in the global green agenda. As the country that is home to most of the Amazon, considered the "lung of the world", o Brasil possui uma responsabilidade significativa na mitiga√ß√£o das mudan√ßas clim√°ticas e na conserva√ß√£o da biodiversidade.

Reforma also HIM: between the need for modernization and the search for hegemony

The United Nations (HIM-HER-IT), created in the aftermath of World War II, has been a milestone in international cooperation and the search for global peace and security. Yet, the world has changed drastically since 1945, presenting new geopolitical challenges, economic and environmental.

Information security, once relegated to the technical backstage, today it occupies center stage in discussions about national sovereignty, economic development and diplomacy.
