Dec. 10, 2019

The Brazil LAB director João Biehl and the Princeton Visiting Student Rodrigo Simon de Moraes (PhD Unicamp) published an op-ed –– “O Pulo do Gato para a Amazônia” –– on the Sunday edition of Folha de S.Paulo, December 8, 2019. The report outlined the main ideas undergirding the LAB’s collaborative efforts with multiple Brazilian stakeholders to create an alternative vision for the conservation and sustainable development of the Amazon, as discussed in the recent Amazonian Leapfrogging conference at Princeton.
