  • Brazilian state governors met with U.S. climate envoy John Kerry on Friday, sidestepping their country’s president, Jair Bolsonaro.
  • Seven state leaders from the Governors for Climate alliance presented a list of projects to Kerry in the virtual meeting.
  • The meeting comes after at least 23 state governors in the alliance sent a letter to U.S. President Joe Biden in April signaling a desire to cooperate on sustainability initiatives in light of the “climate emergency.”
