The expectation around the official proposal that the Brazilian government will present during the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (COP21), taking place from 30 November to 11 December in Paris, France, has generated some bets on which appointments the country will take to achieve them by 2030 (15 years from now). It is possible that the Brazilian delegation proposes the following terms:
. zero illegal deforestation ;
. recover 12 million hectares of deforested forests;
. increase the share of renewables in total energy generated in the country (excluding hydropower) , from 28% to 33%;
. increase the current share of renewable sources (excluding hydropower), from 9.5% to 20 %.
