I would like to better understand the environmental policies and issues on deforestation in Brazil because it is one of the developing countries that is of interest in my work as a research assistant at the International Forestry Resources and Institutions (IFRI). Understanding those aspects will be beneficial in my job because I am assisting in projects that aim to assess the environmental programs being done or already done in several developing nations. In the long run, I could also use the knowledge and new perspectives to gain in studying environmental policies and issues in Brazil to contribute to the progress of my home country, which is also a developing nation.
