Collaborative research has a key role in addressing Climate Change, as well as Biodiversity, issues and challenges. France and Germany are two of the three largest European partners of FAPESP-sponsored researchers and joint funding of projects in those regions has greatly contributed to our knowledge of Biodiversity and Climate Change.
