Masterclass: The Metropolitan Region of Ribeirão Preto and SDG 11

Masterclass: The Metropolitan Region of Ribeirão Preto and SDG 11: identification of expenditures on civil defence and territorial planning

The objective of the event is to address the allocation of financial resources, by the 34 municipalities that make up the Metropolitan Region of Ribeirão Preto, in "Civil Defence" and "Territorial Planning", between the years 2016 and 2020, as proxies of municipal action for achieving SDG 11 “Sustainable Cities and Communities”.

The mission of Civil Defence is to plan, promote, articulate and execute the permanent defence against natural, anthropogenic or mixed. Therefore, integrated and uninterrupted work becomes necessary. On the other hand, Territorial Planning can be understood as actions and instruments for demarcating limits and borders that aim to discipline and organise the occupation and use of land, in addition to guiding the management of the area on which they affect. Therefore, the understanding of actions and the level of financial commitment in Civil Defence and Territorial Planning are central themes for local and metropolitan governments to monitor and achieve adequate and desirable levels of resilience for all citizens, beyond COVID-19, as well as proxies for achieving SDG 11 “Sustainable Cities and Communities”, in particular target 11.b.
