Plan for Sustainable Development and Climate Action of the City of Rio de Janeiro


The plan emerged from a participatory process and debates involving multiple actors of the city of Rio de Janeiro.  Together, multiple stakeholders worked on the integration of municipal planning with the UN Sustainable Development Goals, the pursuit of greenhouse gas emissions neutrality and adaptation to the effects of climate change. These missions will be achieved through innovation, the re-foundation of public governance to overcome local challenges such as reduction of poverty, hunger, maternal, child and violence mortality, assistance to vulnerable populations. This plan serves as a guide for the supply and improvement of housing, employment, public transport, safe and pedestrian-friendly public spaces, health- and education services.
