Program for Capacity Exchange in Environmental Decisions (PROCEED) | Australia-Brazil Alumni

The Program for Capacity Exchange in Environmental Decisions (PROCEED) | Australia-Brazil Alumni is developed by the International Institute for Sustainability Australia (IIS AU) in partnership with the São Paulo State University (UNESP) and funded by the Australian Embassy, which aims to facilitate knowledge exchange, capacity building, and research collaboration between Australian and Brazilian researchers to improve environmental decision making.

PROCEED comprises a series of six webinars led by outstanding researchers in conservation and restoration decision making from both countries and is targeted at early career scientists from Brazil and Australia. At each webinar, you will have the chance to ask questions and explore opportunities for collaboration and exchange among students, early career scientists, and experts from Brazil and Australia.

The purpose of the program is to support current and potential alumni of both Brazilian and Australian institutions to undertake projects which will strengthen Brazil-Australia collaboration in education, research, and innovation and advance knowledge and practice in environmental decision making.

In the third webinar, we will have the presentation of Professor David Lindenmayer, The Fenner School of Environment and Society (The Australian National University). Professor David is a world-leading expert in forest ecology and resource management, conservation science, and biodiversity conservation, with more than 800 peer-reviewed papers published in international scientific journals, and 48 books, including many award winning textbooks. He runs 5 large-scale, long-term research programs in south-eastern Australia, primarily associated with developing ways to conserve biodiversity in farmland, wood production forests, plantations, and reserves.

Currently the main research interests are:

  • Landscape restoration and remnant native vegetation
  • Integrated forest use, wildlife conservation and ecologically sustainability
  • Habitat fragmentation and retained systems in wood production forests
  • Species responses to vegetation types and ecological burning practices
  • Re-introduction biology

Don’t forget and add it to your calendar!
