2007-2012 BMBF collaborative project

Project leader: Prof. Dr. Hartmut Gaese

The DINARIO research project is part of the Brazilian – German co-operation program, launched by the Brazilian Agricultural Research Corporation (EMBRAPA, Brazil) and by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF, Germany). The implementing institutions of this project are the Cologne University of Applied Sciences (in cooperation with the University of Bonn), the University of Leipzig and the Friedrich-Schiller-University of Jena. The project will be carried out in collaboration with two Brazilian institutions, the National Centre for Soil Research (EMBRAPA Solos) and the National Centre for Research of Agrobiology (EMBRAPA Agrobiologia), together with many externally involved project partners. The project addresses the objectives of methodological advancement and applicability of results in decision-making at the interface of environmental management and economic progress in the Brazilian Mata Atlântica region. The principal intentions to carry out this project are derived from the considerations of the actual causes and processes of landscape change under the influence of global change, in particular of future climate conditions.
