UN-HABITAT’s new Cities and Citizens series examines urban inequality in the developing world through in-depth analysis of intercity data developed by UN-HABITAT and its partner institutions and on-the-ground interviews, insights and images. São Paulo: A Tale of Two Cities launches the series, providing a close look at this vast mega city of internal contradictions and complexities.

São Paulo has emerged as the economic powerhouse of Brazil, making huge advances in its socioeconomic and political sectors while remaining beset by inequalities and gaps in distributive justice.
