Assunção, a professor in the Department of Economics at PUC-Rio, CPI’s Brazil office supports key policymakers and decision-makers, such as the Brazilian Ministry of the Environment and the Brazilian National Development Bank. Our research focuses on a Production and Protection approach to land use, particularly forestry and agriculture, energy, and finance. We also lead a collaboration called INPUT (Land Use Initiative – Iniciativa Para o Uso da Terra), which brings together a team of specialists who work at the forefront of how to increase environmental protection and food production.
