Current Projects

Integrated Modeling of the Land Use, Water, and Energy Nexus of Brazilian Biofuels Expansion under Climate Change  clima-wo-text

Project Website: http://clima.org.br/en/

Twitter: @clima_brpt

Project Duration: May 2013 – December 2016

Collaborators:

  1. The Interdisciplinary Laboratory for the Environment (COPPE/LIMA) at the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro
  2. Institute for International Trade Negotiations (ICONE)
  3. Center for Sustainable Water Resources (Dr. Bridget Scanlon) at the Bureau of Economic Geology at The University of Texas at Austin

CLIMA is a research platform seeking to inform Brazilian and international stakeholders on the social and environmental impacts of biofuels expansion in Brazil.

The platform relies on integrated modelling and interdisciplinary research of energy, land use and water topics. Using a broad set of policy scenarios until 2030 we aim to identify possible synergies between those sectors while avoiding negative trade-offs, for example, impacts on food demand prices due to increasing demand for biofuels. CLIMA covers a broad set of issues, from local to macroeconomic scale: water resources and availability for biofuel feedstock production under drought, potential for food versus fuel competition, or the effectiveness of new second-generation biofuel technologies to mitigate deforestation pressures and other land issues.

The time frame for our focus is 2030. Therefore, CLIMA integrates climate impacts on crop productivity to also understand medium-term adaptation needs in biofuels and agriculture sectors.
