Abstract: 
The starting point for this study was the consideration of future climate change scenarios and their uncertainties.

It aims to identify the main trends in terms of changes in temperature and precipitation for the North and Northeast regions of Brazil (more specifically, in the Amazon, semi-arid and cerrado biomes).
