Energy, emissions and population

The biggest challenge regarding emissions, in my assessment, is associated with poor countries.

It is in there that (1) a great increase in population occurs (in the last 50 years Brazil has gone from 90 million to 210 million) and (2) the forests are systematically devastated.

Combining these two factors and one can reach an obvious conclusion: a very important challenge is in the 3rd world.

How to sensitize countries towards plans to tackle these two gigantic challenges that demand population stability and reduction of emissions?

Brazil, for example, only made a statement at Biden's request. I don't feel that there was a commitment (in the Government's budget plans) with a strategy agreed between all the entities of the Federation.
