The Inter-American Institute for Global Change Research (IAI) and the Instituto Nacional de Pesquisas Espaciais (INPE)/Centro de Previsão de Tempo e Estudos Climáticos (CPTEC) will jointly hold a Summer Institute on Land Use and Cover Changes in the Amazonian Region: Patterns, Processes and Plausible Scenarios. This activity is being co-organized together with the Large Scale Biosphere-Atmosphere Experiment in Amazonia (LBA).
The overarching goal of the institute was to catalyze stronger interactions among academics, stakeholders, and decision-makers from the countries sharing the Amazon with respect to theories, models, methods, state policies and local initiatives to capture the benefits and mitigate negative environmental and social impacts of land use and land cover change.
