Global climate change is one of the biggest problems facing humanity today.
The complexity of the scientific understanding of this phenomenon introduces a high degree of uncertainty, which makes difficult to identify adaptation strategies, especially in cities.
To support decision makers, we work with different perspectives, seeking a more integrated vision in the development of proposals. Our work includes the urban agenda, as well as the elaboration of a guide for cities to develop Adaptation Plans or studies under a more quantitative approach of the risks and vulnerabilities of critical infrastructures in Brazil to climate changes, as well as the mitigation of impacts through projects, restoration and forest conservation.
