KLIMAPOLIS is a 5-year joint project (2017-2022) between Germany and Brazil to establish and develop a long term cooperative research on urban air pollution and climate change in metropolitan areas of Brazil.

The project has been funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF), and will address the questions of co-evolution of urbanization, climate change and air pollution in several metropolitan areas of Brazil. The objective is to co-design with city officials and assess win-win solutions that will lead to the development of smart cities, resilient to climate change and air pollution. This will be achieved by integrating complimentary expertise through staff exchange between Brazil and Germany, training courses and joint workshops
