Climate change

The 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, making it challenging to identify adaptation strategies, especially in cities.

To support decision-makers, IIS develops projects and research in the climate agenda. Our involvement spans from participation in the development of Adaptation Plans and studies on risks and vulnerabilities to climate change, to the mitigation of impacts through the implementation of projects focused on the restoration and conservation of Brazilian ecosystems.
