Brazil: United States and Brazil - Partners in Combatting Climate Change and Food Insecurity

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)   |   BR2023-0003

The United States and Brazil are world leaders in agricultural research, and our collaboration over the last several decades has been a cornerstone of the close relationship between our two countries. Strengthening this relationship by expanding collaborative research will be critical as the world faces the existential threat of climate change and food insecurity. To meet this challenge, scientists from the United States and Brazil are developing a fertilizer-use efficiency research initiative that will be launched at the 50th anniversary celebration of Embrapa (Brazilian Agricultural Research Corporation) on April 26, 2023.
