During the last 20 years CoPS has enjoyed many collaborations with Brazilian academics, beginning in the mid-1990s with links to Professor Eduardo
Haddad at the University of São Paulo. Haddad and his team constructed the B-MARIA CGE model of Brazil, based on the CoPS MMRF model.
The current phase began with a year-long visit to CoPS by Professor Joaquim Bento de Souza Ferreira Filho (of ESALQ, USP, Piracicaba) in 2002,
when he constructed a large CGE model of Brazil. Professor Mark Horridge of CoPS made a 3-month return visit to Piracicaba in 2004. Since then
Horridge and Ferreira Filho have met most years, in Brazil, Australia or elsewhere, to work on Brazilian CGE models based on the TERM framework. A number of Brazilian academics and graduate students have spent up to a year at CoPS. The Practical GE Modelling Course was presented in São Paulo (2006) and again in
The collaborations have led to several journal articles and working papers, mostly focused on the regional, distributional and ecological
consequences of Brazilian economic policies. They include:
