AdaptaBrasil: Innovative Platform for Monitoring Climate Change

Dr. Jean Pierre Ometto

National Institute for Space Research (INPE) – Senior Researcher

Abstract:

Sustainable development and climate mitigation and adaptation in a country the size of Brazil presents enormous challenges regarding the environmental, social, and productivity sectors. Climate risk is based on the characterization of the social and natural systems linked to vulnerability and exposure to a given hazard. The associated impact is measured by its consequences on different sectors of society and natural systems. The frequency and intensity of extreme events, such as floods, droughts, and heatwaves, have increasingly been attributed to anthropogenic climate change by the scientific literature (IPCC 2021). For decision-making processes, actions on both mitigation of climate change drivers and impacts, as well as adaptation measures to increase resilience and minimize risks and costs to society, require a strong scientific basis and facilitating mechanisms for assessing both data and solutions. AdaptaBrasil MCTI platform, developed in collaboration with Climate Network and Education and Research National Network (RNP), is a bottom-up institutional effort to bring research institutes and academia to meaningfully help both public and private sectors to act on climate risk and adaptation. It is a platform created to consolidate, integrate and disseminate robust information in a centralized and easily accessible manner, enabling analyzes of observed and projected impacts over the national territory. Its aim is to provide greater environmental awareness to the civil society and subsidize decision-makers on adaptation actions.

About the Lecturer

Senior Researcher at the Brazilian Institute of Space Research (INPE) and Coordinator of the Earth System Science Center (CCST/INPE). Postgraduate Professor at CCST/INPE; Collaborating Professor at NEPAM (UNICAMP). I started my scientific work with a focus on biogeochemistry, stable isotopes and interactions among the components of the biosphere, including “anthropic landscapes”. Recently, the academic and research activities are centered on the diagnosis and prognosis of anthropogenic activities and climatic changes, in natural biogeochemical processes, land use and land cover, greenhouse gas emissions and sustainability indicators, including mitigation and adaptation actions; with contributions to the Brazilian government on issues related to the quantification of carbon emissions of the LULUCF sector. Appointed IPCC contributor to WG-II – Impacts, Adaptation, and Vulnerability (for AR5 and AR6 cycles) and to the Task Force on GHG emissions inventories; for IPBES on Regional and Subregional Scope Evaluation; and for the Climate and Clean Air Coalition to Reduce Short-Term Climate Pollutants (CCAC) in Latin America; Brazilian representative of the Executive Board of the Inter-American Institute for Global Change Research (IAI); Regional Director of the International Nitrogen Initiative (INI); Member of the American Geophysical Union’s Committee on International Participation (AGU-CIP); Member of the Coordination of the FAPESP Program of Research on Global Climate Change; Vice-Chair of the Brazilian Research Network on Global Climate Change (CLIMA Network); Member of the Scientific Steering Committee of the Global Carbon Project Scientific Street (GCP).
