Project description : Title: The role of environmental agencies in seeking synergies between the SDGs related to water, biodiversity and the adaptation agenda related to climate change.

There is a high level of uncertainty in defining the actions to be taken in face of the impacts of climate change. However, despite these uncertainties, we need to implement actions that are capable of coping with the socio-environmental crisis and the complexity we are facing.
Therefore, the aim of the present study is to evaluate how the environmental agencies from Brazil and from Europe have dealt with these challenges, especially regarding the interrelationships between climate change, water resources management and biodiversity from the perspective of Agenda 2030. Thus, we seek to assess how the countries under study, especially their agencies responsible for environmental policy, build the necessary articulation so that climate change is taken into account in the plans and public policies of the sectors related to water and biodiversity.

Specific research objectives: to identify the main plans and programs implemented by the agencies; to map the main bureaucratic difficulties; to analyze management instruments and to study the legal framework that supports the implementation of the necessary measures.
