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 simultaneously reduce deforestation, increase the production of cash crops and biofuels, and intensify cattle-raising. 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. IIASA is also working with Brazilian agencies to build capacity in systems approaches to national and international policy issues, including support for Brazilian participation in IIASA’s Young Scientists Summer Program, specialized training in model development and application, and a new partnership with Brazil’s Science Without Borders program to bring Brazilian postdoctoral scholars to IIASA. Knowledge transfer between Brazil and IIASA is also facilitated through multiple exchanges with Brazilian researchers working at or visiting IIASA, and IIASA researchers visiting and attending events in Brazil.
