Research collaborations between Brazil and IIASA have intensified since Brazil became a member of IIASA in 2011. New research projects are using the tools of systems analysis to find the smartest ways for Brazil to achieve sustainable agriculture and land management strategies that reduce deforestation.
Other projects have focused on energy: Ranging from long-term energy planning, to learning from Brazil’s leadership in the use of ethanol fuel, to advancing understanding of the complex global energy system and its multiple connections with Brazil’s economy, environment, and society.
The Latin America and Caribbean Chapter of the International Network for Government Science Advice (INGSA), and the Colombian Academy of Physical, Exact and Natural Science are organising a Science Advice Capacity Building Symposium and Workshop in Bogotá, Colombia. More
Options Summer 2020: Brazil could potentially expand biofuel production without significantly affecting food production or increasing adverse land use impacts and deforestation, according to a recent IIASA study. More
Options Winter 2019/20:The strong relationship that Brazilian and IIASA scientists have forged over the years is supporting a thriving research community exploring issues affecting the country with a view on informing policy decisions for sustainable development. More
Raquel Guimaraes writes about efforts by the scientific community to encourage governments in Latin America and the Caribbean to increase COVID-19 test coverage. More
By Camila Ludovique, research assistant CAPES/IIASA Sandwich Doctorate I come from Brazil, more specifically from the Energy Planning Program of the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro, that postcard city that most of you may have already seen in pictures, with gorgeous mountains beside the ocean, the sunsets… But, on the ground we have many […] More
