Vision and public policy proposals for the reduction of inequalities, for the deepening of democracy and the sustainable development of all of Rio.
Agenda Rio gathers visions and policy proposals to qualify the public debate about the ways forward for Rio after the cycle of big events, with a focus on the reduction of inequalities, deepening of democracy, and sustainable development. The Agenda is based on two fundamental principles. First, that Rio needs to think about its universality, embracing not only the focal point of the capital, but also the entire range of its territory: the 21 municipalities that make up, in practice, one sole metropolitan city. The second, that fully realizing its potential demands full incorporation of the meanings of sustainable development – inclusive, just, and democratic – equally destined to the entire population.
Based on interviews with partners and widespread forums for policy debate as well as policy documents elaborated by civil society organizations from Rio, Agenda Rio reflects the visions of actors historically committed to public causes in the city. Compiled for the first time in 2014, as collaboration for the debate of state elections, Agenda Rio is now being updated, once again bringing together the sum of diverse voices from all of the metropolis in the face of the challenges that continue in the post-Olympic cycle.
