Water Talks: Unmapped Responses to Water Scarcity in Sao Paolo
Join us to hear from Ana Correa do Lago, a researcher and economist focused on the response of cities to the extreme events posed by the climate crisis. She holds an MS in Urban Ecologies from Parsons School of Design, where she developed an investigation on alternative water supply systems that emerged in São Paulo, Brazil, following the water accessibility crisis of 2015. Her project earned the Student Research Award grant from The New School and was presented in the 2021 Latin American Studies Congress. Having worked at the BCorp Natura&Co —Brazil's leading developer of products based on the biodiversity of the Brazilian flora— Lago learned to implement public affairs strategies, and now reimagines how the concept of sustainability can move from corporate social responsibility initiatives to transforming cities that benefit people.
