The Amazon Observatory on Trade and Environment (OCAA) will display on February 19, from 7pm to 8:30pm (UTC +1), the first chapter of the “OCAA Webinars” series. The episode discusses the likely consequences of the trade agreement between Mercosur and the European Union for the Brazilian Amazon.

Two speakers – the Senior Researcher at Imazon (Institute of Man and Environment of the Amazon), Paulo Barreto, and the Senior Expert in Environmental Analysis at the London School of Economics, Stefania Lovo – present and discuss two studies. “Is the EU Mercosur Agreement Deforestation Proof?” and the report commissioned by the European Commission, “Sustainability Impact Assessment“.

The webinar will be mediated by the communication coordinator of the Climate Observatory, Claudio Angelo. Watch live here.
