Support for the Brazilian National Agenda for Sustainable Urban Development
As of: July 2020
Objective and activities
Urbanisation processes in Brazil are progressing rapidly, but the consequences are severe social disparities and environmental problems. The project supports federal, state and local stakeholders authorities in implementing strategies for integrated planning and in managing sustainable urban development. Mitigation and adaptation strategies, the urban-rural nexus and the importance of intact ecosystems as “green service providers” for cities are addressed. Existing regulations and instruments will be improved, expanded and tested in pilot measures. Approaches to integrated sustainable urban development are incorporated into government strategies, support programmes and funding lines. Training and dissemination concepts are intended to anchor these approaches in communities and local authorities. The German-Brazilian Urbanization Partnership also supports international learning and exchange processes.
