Brazil will have the second largest delegation at COP-26, but without its President

Brazil should arrive at the 26th United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP-26) with the second largest delegation among participating countries, behind only the United States.  Bolsonaro and and the VP Hamilton Mourão, however, are not expected to attend.

Accompanying the Minister of Environment and head of delegation, Joaquim Leite, are the Minister of Mines and Energy, Bento Albuquerque; Fábio Faria, from the Ministry of Communications; and the president of the Central Bank, Roberto Campos Neto. The group arrives at the meeting under pressure from the international community because of the poor results of the Brazilian environmental policy.

In a press conference, British Prime Minister Peter Wilson said that the absence of President Jair Bolsonaro “could weaken Brazil’s voice,” according to a CNN report.
