What are Brazilian’s perceptions on climate change? Who do Brazilians believe can help the most solve this issue? And who are the main responsible actors for the Amazon fires?

To understand the perceptions of Brazilians on these topics, ITS partnered with the Yale Program on Climate Change Communication to undertake a nationwide study with 2,600 interviewees across Brazil, entitled “Climate Change and Public Perception in Brazil”.

This unique, nationwide study demonstrates the concerns of Brazilians regarding the environment and reveals that voters and consumers are making decisions coherent with their environmental values.
