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
