Since the conceptualization of the LBA Program, Training and Education was considered an essential component for:

  • Providing advanced training for Brazilian and South American scientists, mostly in the Amazon region;

  • Building capacity of regional scientists at interdisciplinary level;

  • Improving research infrastructure of participating institutions;

  • Contributing to the sustainability of resources for research in the Amazon.

Based on this rationale, NASA strongly encouraged each science team to support training of students with ties to Amazonian institutions to:

  • Increase the number of qualified participants in LBA research through assistance in developing technical and scientific skills and expertise;

  • Expand and strengthen the environmental and global change research community in Amazonia.

To achieve these goals Principal Investigators working in Brazil were required by Brazilian law to collaborate with Brazilian institutions, engaging in informal and institutional educational activities for Undergraduate, Masters, Doctoral and Post-Doctoral students.

In addition to the wide range of training and education activities provided by science teams, members of the LBA-ECO Project Office staff worked in close collaboration with the LBA Training and Education Committee at INPA.
