10 – 22 November 2003 – Piracicaba, Brazil
This activity was held in collaboration with the Center for Nuclear Energy applied to Agriculture (CENA) of the University of São Paulo (USP) in Brazil and the Research Unit “Soil carbon sequestration” of the Research Institute for the Development (IRD) of France.
The overarching goal of the institute is to present and discuss global climate changes, the greenhouse effect, the potential positive and negative impacts of global warming, as well as mitigation alternatives and international actions, such as international treaties and protocol, as well as to catalyze stronger interactions among academics, stakeholders, and decision-makers from the IAI member countries in the region dealing with global climate changes and the greenhouse effect.
