Abranches, Sergio

A political scientist with a PhD from Cornell University, Sergio Abranches has a daily op-ed commentary on the Brazilian all-news radio network CBN on Ecopolitics. He cofounded O Eco, an environmental news agency dedicated to training young journalists to report on environmental themes and to facilitate the dialogue between scientists and journalists, with support from Avina and Hewlett Foundation. In 2010, he published Copenhagen: before and after, a journalistic account of the Copenhagen summit on climate change and global climate change politics. His story on the Muriquis (Brazilian spider monkeys), primates of the Atlantic rainforest, co-authored with Miriam Leitão, was awarded the SOS Mata Atlântica prize for environmental journalism. He has published a short-story volume, and The Dark Fur of Fear is his first novel.
