The second edition of the booklet presents the new activities of Brazilian Academy of Sciences and its history, actions, and expectations for the future.
The Brazilian Academy of Sciences (ABC), the German National Academy of Sciences Leopoldina and Germany's Young Academy organized the symposium "Water Issues and Ecological Sustainability in Areas of Urbanization" from 5-8 May 2014 in São Carlos, Brazil. The event was part of the bilateral year "Germany + Brazil 2013/2014" and provided young scientists from both countries with a platform for discussions on severe water problems in urban regions. The results of this scientific exchange are included in the report Water in Urban Regions: Building Future Knowledge to Integrate Land Use, Ecosystem Services and Human Health. In this document, the authors identify forward-looking research questions, which, once deeper explored scientifically, might contribute to meeting important societal challenges in urban regions.
This booklet provides a glimpse of the Brazilian Academy of Sciences and its actions, presenting Brazil as one of the most productive nations that participate in the scientific development of our globalized world.
