BRIDGE: Building Resilience In a Dynamic Global Economy — Complexity across scales in Brazil.

The BRIDGE project is a UK-BRAZIL collaboration funded by the Newton Funds, comprising of the ESRC and FAPESC.

It supports researchers in the modelling, understanding and governance of the Food-Water-Energy Nexus.


The BRIDGE project aims to develop a framework of analysis and policy engagement to improve the resilience of the Brazilian Food-Water-Energy (FWE) nexus to global environmental and economic change, in close cooperation with the Brazilian academic community. It combines established UK expertise and specifically developed, state-of-the-art analytical capacity in socio-economic and environmental modelling to build a robust environmental policy assessment methodology for the Brazilian FWE nexus in the context of global change. The modelling capacity, skills and knowledge will be transferred to relevant actors in Brazil to enable local academics to continue informing and engaging policymakers through a continued sustainability transition during and beyond the end of this project.

The project is funded by the Newton Fund, a collaboration between UK and Brazil Research Councils, the ESRC and FAPESC.
