Yale SOM International Experience
   Brazil Amazon 2015

Aligning with Professor Mobarak's increased focus on Brazil he plans to bring students to the Brazilian Amazon in 2015.  On this trip students will experience field-research first hand while visiting Sustainable Settlements in the Amazon.  The Sustainable Settlements project has the goal of increasing the income and quality of life of settler families, without the need of clearing new areas for production.  This unique experience will allow students to interface first-hand with field-based research on deforestation and agriculture.   Dr. Mobarak will augment this experience with visits and presentations from various government, NGO and research partners.
