“Building an official database with quality and disaggregated information on informal settlements in the “grotas” (slums) in Maceió is a challenge that the state of Alagoas needs to overcome. The Quick Participatory Mapping methodology is a major contribution of the project implemented by UN-Habitat in our state. It will provide local public servants with information to promote an evidence-based agenda of public policies in line with the pursuit of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), as well as their targets and indicators.”
Fabrício Marques Santos, Secretary of Planning, Management and Estate at the State of Alagoas
Donors and partners
Most of the projects in Brazil are technical assistance undertaken through partnerships with municipalities and state governments in a diverse range of urban themes. In many of those projects, academia has an important role on providing evidences through specialised research, collecting data and monitoring indicators; while civil society has been essential to guarantee participatory processes and mobilising groups or communities. Throughout the years, strong relationship with the national government and nationwide organizations has also been crucial to raise awareness and support urban and regional development policies and initiatives on a federal level. Partnerships with the private sector has been important to support social responsibility initiatives and disseminate global agenda.
