Gacint recebeu Nicholas Zimmerman em evento em parceria com o Woodrow WIlson Center

THE PATH FORWARD FOR BRAZIL-U.S. RELATIONS
The green agenda sits at the top of the new U.S. administration's priorities, and will profoundly shape its foreign policy agenda -- including its relationship with Brazil.  The two countries, both large and diverse democracies, have traditionally shared many common values and goals.  Now, as the United States focus on creating a more sustainable system domestically and abroad, it is looking to Brazil, long an environmental powerhouse, for partnership.  Yet the challenges are clear. Join us for a discussion of the realities of Brazil-U.S. relations and the potential for a pragmatic, constructive engagement on environmental policies and beyond.
