The Brazilian government has carried out profound reforms in the country's energy system, opening up the electricity and gas sectors to private initiative. With a thriving oil and gas industry, renewables, especially wind power, are expected to advance rapidly over the next decade, positioning Brazil as a particularly attractive country for investment opportunities. However, the country's deforestation-related water crisis is jeopardizing agricultural production as well as hydroelectric generation and flying rivers, exposing the country's vulnerabilities to climate change. Brazil, a key country in the fight against climate change, represents both the opportunities and risks involved in this historic mission.
