1) Prof. Guedes received funding from the Brazilian National Research Council (CNPq) and the Minas Gerais Research Funding Agency (FAPEMIG) for a project entitled: “Demography of Exception: Reproductive Intentions and Migration in a context of Zika Outbreak and Socioenvironmental Disasters“, in collaboration with colleagues from Universidade Federal de Minas Gerais (Prof. Alisson Barbieri and Raquel Zanatta – Demography Dept., Profs. Dimitri Fazito and Marden Campos – Sociology Dept.) and University of Texas at Austin (Prof. Letícia Marteleto – Sociology Dept.).

2) Prof. Guedes is currently the PI of a large project, funded by the United Nations Fund for Population Affairs (UNFPA) and the Brazilian Ministry of the Environment (MMA), entitled: “Population Dynamics and Its Implication for the Agenda of Sustainable Development“. The project involves five main themes: (1) socioenvironmental profiles of the Brazilian municipalities; (2) a demand model for sustainable consumption in Brazil; (3) urban expansion and its overlap with environmentally sensitive areas; (4) the socio-spatial dynamics of metropolitan slams and protected areas in Brazil; (5) the regional and national climate impacts on the economy through shocks in agricultural and labor productivity. The project envolves researchers from 5 universities and more than 30 researchers, from undergrads, to PostDocs, to professors.

3) Prof. Guedes is co-PI on the InterAmerican Institute (IAI-NSF) funded project LUCIA (Land Use, Climate and Infection Diseases in Western Amazonia). The 5-years project involves colleagues from UFMG (Alisson Barbieri, PI; Laura Wong, co-PI) and other institutions: Fiocruz (Ulisses Confalonieri); Duke University, USA (William Pan); Universidad San Francisco de Quito, Ecuador (Carlos Mena); and Universidad Peruana Cayetano Heredia, Peru (Alejandro Llanos Cuenta; Jaime Miranda). The project uses the social-ecological systems approach to understand the relationships between population changes, LULCC, climate change and infection disease transmission in three Amazonian sites: Machadinho, Rondônia (Brazil), Madre de Dios and Loreto (Peru), and the Northern Ecuadorian Amazon. The project combines data on climate, vectors, and social surveys, and intends to apply the Agent-Base Modeling approach to identifying emerging properties of the SES in the Amazon under climate stress.
