International Futures (IFs) subnational data workshops in Brazil
Throughout the 2018-19 academic year, Assistant Director of Research Operations Mickey Rafa and Senior Research Associate David Bohl led a project for the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) which facilitated the identification, collection, and incorporation of data on the states of Brazil into the IFs model. This work was an extension of a report produced by the Pardee Center in December 2017, Sustainable Development Goals Report: Brazil 2030, which uses Ifs to analyze development priorities for Brazil. In October, Bohl led introductory trainings in Brasilia for participants from multiple agencies, states, and levels of government. This ongoing work seeks to build capacity for using IFs to think about the long-term future at the state level in Brazil. Scenarios developed by the Pardee Center research team will inform 27 UNDP reports prepared for state governors across the country.
