ge and reducing dependence on foreign energy supplies that can come from politically unstable regions. In response, the United States, Brazil, Mexico and Argentina have moved toward encouraging the development of new energy forms, including biofuels made from plants such as corn, sugarcane, soybeans and palm tree nuts that can be domestically produced with fewer environmental impacts than traditional energy from petroleum, coal or natural gas.

A team of foreign collaborators in this project from the National Autonomous University of Mexico are receiving support from USAID. Together, this international team of social, natural and engineering scientists will work together to collect data about these impacts, translate findings into new ways to measure and reduce those impacts, while increasing understanding of how public policies can help maximize biofuel benefits while minimizing costs.

Developing lowcCarbon cities in the U.S., China, and India through integration across engineering, environmental sciences, social sciences, and public health - University of Minnesota, Twin Cities

This PIRE award supports a five-year project that assembles researchers and students from six U.S. institutions together with five partner institutions in India and three in China to conduct transformative research that will contribute to the development of low-carbon, sustainable cities in the U.S., India and China. This answers a need for cities to have science-based tools to model present-day greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions associated with cities, and to project future GHG emissions reductions resulting from a combination of technology and policy strategies. This two-pronged research effort focuses on reducing greenhouse gas emissions in selected cities, as well as addressing broader sustainability goals such as economic development, water scarcity, environmental pollution, climate change and public health. The research explores transformations needed in
