A New Economy for a New Era: Elements for Building a More Efficient and Resilient Economy for Brazil

This study highlights policies capable of reducing poverty and inequality, contributing to the achievement of economic and sectoral goals, stimulating sustainable economic growth and making Brazil more resilient to future pandemics and other risks, such as climate change and the destruction of ecosystems. . The study presents an extensive literature review of the benefits and opportunities of policies in infrastructure, industry and agriculture, and new employment and income results from economic modeling on low carbon policies. What this study proposes is to show a series of compelling elements that highlight how Brazil has never been so capable of implementing this new economy and how much the country and its people have to gain from it.

The study is led by WRI Brazil and the initiative New Climate Economy, and carried out in partnership with experts from the Pontifical Catholic University of Rio de Janeiro (PUC-Rio), Climate Policy Initiative (CPI), Alberto Luiz Coimbra Institute of Postgraduate Studies and Engineering Research, Federal University of Rio de Janeiro (COPPE/UFRJ), Institute of Applied Economic Research (Ipea), Brazilian Federation of Banks (Febraban) and Brazilian Business Council for Sustainable Development (CEBDS).
