Infracities 2023: Event discusses innovative urban policies and public-private partnerships

Dialogue between the public and private sectors and academia is a key element in driving forward innovative solutions capable of tackling current urban problems. With this in mind, the Center for Innovation in Urban Public Policy (FGV Cities) at the Sao Paulo School of Business Administration (FGV EAESP) and SP Parcerias S/A (SPP), an agency of the municipal government of Sao Paulo, are jointly holding “Infracities 2023.” This meeting, designed to be an annual forum to debate major issues related to public-private partnerships for the sustainable development of Brazilian municipalities, will take place on October 25, at 9 a.m., in the FGV 9 de Julho Auditorium in Sao Paulo.

Based on the central theme of “Innovative Policies and Public-Private Partnerships: Solutions for Inclusive and Sustainable Cities,” the event will consist of three panel discussions, bringing together experts in the field, public managers and private sector players. The first session will address “PPPs and municipalities: Challenges and opportunities.” The second panel will focus on “Activating public spaces and park management as successful projects.” The third will debate “Social impacts in education and housing through the implementation of partnerships.”

The meeting is one of several initiatives encompassed by a scientific and technological cooperation agreement between FGV Cities and SPP to develop projects in the areas of housing and education. “SPP’s mission is to promote socioeconomic well-being through concessions and public-private partnerships. Our cooperation agreement with FGV Cities is part of this goal of contributing to the provision of better and more efficient public services for the population,” said the CEO of SPP, Guilherme Bueno.

According to the director of FGV Cities, Ciro Biderman, the event will be an opportunity to hold a high-quality debate on current urban issues. “The partnership with SPP has been systemic, giving us the opportunity to interact with the municipal government in the design, monitoring and evaluation of public policies in Sao Paulo, the largest city in Latin America. This meeting will certainly show the public the innovative policies of the city of Sao Paulo and how interaction with academia can be crucial to improving these policies,” he says.
