This Portuguese-language publication documents the lessons of the II UrbFavelas Seminar held November 23-26, 2017 at Rio de Janeiro’s State University (UERJ). Cities Alliance supported the event, which was organised jointly by departments from several universities, governmental entities and civil society organizations.
The UrbFavelas seminar debated upgrading initiatives in Brazil’s favelas, their advances and challenges, resulting not just in an intense exchange of case studies, but also in the proposal of concrete paths and alternatives to current public policies. The seminar aimed to discuss the favela not as part of the housing problem, but as part of its solution.
