Ações de Impacto Rápido para os Objetivos de Desenvolvimento Sustentável (ODS)

Developing and promoting impactful solutions to the UN’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)

The Sustainable Development Goals are initiatives created by the UN to eradicate poverty, uphold human rights, put an end to violence, and protect the planet by the year 2030. Despite this goal, in some regions in Brazil there has been little discussion as to how these initiatives will be implemented. Agenda Pública has created and shared public policy solutions as a way to encourage these SDGs to be met.

Founded in 2009, the organization connects governments, the private sector and civil society to fine-tune the democratic means and management of public policies. 15,000 people across Brazil and Latin America are active in its programs focused on strengthening public policy management. The goal is to reach 5,000 public officials.

With support from BrazilFoundation, Agenda Pública aims to:

• Produce and spread high-impact, public policy solutions for each of the 17 SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals);
• Hold a workshop with specialists on topics such as dignity, prosperity and personal development, environmental protection, and institutional partnerships;
• Systematize 3 quick guides with alternatives to policies, good practices, and sources for funding;
• Share best practices on social media.
