How an innovative resettlement plan helped improve lives in Brazil
11/09/2018 Since 2 years

The Mané Dendê River Basin in the western part of Salvador (the capital of Bahia) has a population of about 44,000. Eighty percent of households in the area have incomes below the minimum wage, and 32 percent of the Salvador population lives in informal settlements, sometimes in areas prone to flooding and with poor access to public services.

This Environmental Sanitation and Urban Development Program aims to improve the well-being and quality of life—in economic, social, and health terms—of people living in the Mané Dendê River Basin through sustainable improvements in social, environmental, and urban development conditions. Specifically, the program will finance macro-drainage, containment of slopes, water and sanitary sewage networks, housing for resettlement, improvement of precarious housing, roads, urbanization, landscaping, and other complementary interventions. In addition, the project includes an innovative solid waste management pilot in areas of difficult access.
