  • Aline Soterroni | Nature-based Solutions Initiative

    My research interests focus on using economic land use modeling to design scenarios and evaluate climate policies, with a particular focus on Brazil. I have been the lead developer of a regional land-use modeling used to provide quantitative science-based results to Brazilian stakeholders and policy makers. As part of the Oxford Net Zero and Nature-based Solutions Initiative, I am interested in understanding the synergies and trade-offs between net zero policies and biodiversity conservation, including the role of Nature-based Solutions in climate mitigation efforts.
