Cities and Territories
We live in an increasingly urban world. By the middle of the century 6 billion people will live in cities. In Brazil, more than 170 million people – around 85% of the population, already do. This reality aggravates already complex problems, such as inequality, lack of infrastructure and the unsustainable consumption of natural resources. And it makes it more difficult for governments to provide services that meet public needs.
But cities are not an obstacle to a better future. On the contrary. They concentrate the human, economic and technological resources that can revolutionize the way we live. With incentives for innovation, committed leaders and the participation of society, we can create fairer, healthier and more prosperous environments for everyone.
In the Cities and Territories programme we support initiatives that stimulate innovation in public administration and participation of the public in the transformation of cities.
