Alexandre Antonelli at COP28 Dubai

Updated: Dec 28, 2023



šŸ‡¬šŸ‡§ Alexandre Antonelli, President of the Antonelli Foundations and Co-leader of the ARAƇƁ Project, is currently participating in COP28 in DUBAI. During the event, he presented the Global Biodiversity Standard, a pioneering restoration certificate system in development, on behalf of Botanic Gardens Conservation International and its partners. Throughout his time at COP28, Antonelli engaged in the Biodiversity Credits workshop and participated in insightful discussions with scientists, politicians, and indigenous communities, addressing climate change issues and emphasizing the critical need to preserve our forests.


The ARAƇƁ project expresses its concern about the numerous instances of climate extremes and rising temperatures observed over the past decade. We hope that these occurrences serve as compelling evidence to take decisive action to mitigate the escalation of atmospheric CO2 and global warming. Central to this effort is the imperative for comprehensive forest protection and reforestation of deforested areas.


Our primary goal is to preserve the remaining Atlantic Forest and promote reforestation initiatives to expand this vital biome. By doing so, we aim to conserve biodiversity and safeguard the crucial ecological services essential for combatting climate change.

šŸ‡§šŸ‡· Alexandre Antonelli, presidente da FundaĆ§Ć£o Antonelli e co-lĆ­der do Projeto ARAƇƁ, encontra-se atualmente participando da COP28 em Dubai. Durante o evento, apresentou o Global Biodiversity Standard, o primeiro sistema de certificaĆ§Ć£o de restauraĆ§Ć£o do mundo em desenvolvimento, em nome da Botanic Gardens Conservation International e seus parceiros. Ao longo desses dias, participou tambĆ©m do workshop sobre CrĆ©ditos de Biodiversidade e estĆ” engajado em discussƵes com cientistas, polĆ­ticos e comunidades indĆ­genas, abordando questƵes relacionadas Ć s mudanƧas climĆ”ticas e ressaltando a importĆ¢ncia de preservar nossas florestas.


NĆ³s, do Projeto ARAƇƁ, esperanƧa de que os numerosos episĆ³dios de extremos climĆ”ticos e elevadas temperaturas vivenciados na Ćŗltima dĆ©cada sirvam como evidĆŖncia suficiente para que tomemos medidas definitivas para conter o aumento do CO2 atmosfĆ©rico e o aquecimento global. Para que esse objetivo seja alcanƧado, a proteĆ§Ć£o integral das florestas e o reflorestamento das Ć”reas desmatadas sĆ£o fundamentais.


Nosso objetivo principal consiste em proteger a Mata AtlĆ¢ntica remanescente e fomentar iniciativas de reflorestamento para ampliar esse tĆ£o importante bioma. Dessa maneira, buscamos preservar a biodiversidade e os serviƧos ecossistĆŖmicos essenciais para enfrentar as mudanƧas climĆ”ticas.
