Rio de Janeiro, RJ

The Brazilian environmental public agencies in the Municipalities and Federal States, represented by ANAMMA and ABEMA will promote this event at Rio+20 to discuss issues involving Environment Public Policy and the setting of environmental management in Brazil.

The potential contribution to the outcome of UNCSD/Rio+20 is to promote a discussion regarding the central themes of Rio+20 amongst a specific and very important public: senior public sector officials, policy makers, policy planners and practitioners from government agencies of cities who are developing their environmental public actions all over the country.

In addition, the meeting intends to promote a wide range of interchange between this public, as a unique opportunity for them to present their best actions/executed projects and the difficulties to build a sustainable based city trough public policy and public planning in Brazil.
