Debora Sotto

Universidade de São Paulo
Post Doctoral Researcher
São Paulo - Brazil
I am a Post Doc researcher at the Faculty of Public Health, Universidade de São Paulo, Brazil. I also work for the Municipality of São Paulo as a lawyer, at the Department of Urban Planning. I have a PhD on Urban Law (Pontifícia Universidade Católica de São Paulo - 2015) and a Masters on International Environmental Law (Université de Limoges - 2011). As a Post Doc Researcher, working under the supervision of Professor Arlindo Philippi Jr., I intend to analyze the efforts made by Brazilian cities to address climate issues, in order to verify if and to what extent these local actions contribute to the fulfillment of the commitments assumed by the Brazilian Government in its iNDC, as well as to identify mechanisms of input and output between international and local actions and between environmental and urban policies at the local level.
