Pedro FidelmanI am a scholar in the filed of environmental social science with a particular interest in policy, institutions and management in the context of sustainability and environmental governance.

I was born and grew up in Brazil where I received a BSc (Hons I) and MSc. In 2007, I finished a PhD with a focus on Institutional Analysis of Natural Resource Management at the University of Wollongong, Australia. Since then, I have held academic positions in Brazil and Australia (e.g., Australian Research Council Centre of Excellence for Coral Reef Studies and Sustainability Research Centre [SRC], University of the Sunshine Coast).

I currently hold an adjunct fellow appointment with the SRC.  I also serve as a Senior Research Fellow in the Earth System Governance Project, and Lead Author (Policy Effectiveness) for the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) Global Environment Outlook 6.
