Sitawi participa do Seminário Qualicidades

The Qualities seminar, held by Sebrae in partnership with IETS and Camara Metropolitana, brought together national and international speakers to discuss solutions for management and governance. During two days, participants discussed financing opportunities and models, energy efficiency, smart cities and integration in metropolises, among other topics.

A mesa sobre Oportunidades e Novos Modelos de Financiamento contou com a participação do CEO da Sitawi Finanças do Bem, Leonardo Letelier.

– The SIB – Social Impact Bonds or Social Impact Bonds (TIS) – offers a more flexible structure for service providers to pursue social outcome goals more effectively, transferring financial risk to the private investor and promoting rational use of resources public by creating evidence that enables the integration of interventions in public policies – commented Leonardo.

According to him, the SIBs are a mechanism for public contracting and private financing of social services, with payment conditioned to the achievement of social results goals, measured by an independent evaluator. The typical duration of an SIB contract is 3 to 7 years.

During the meeting, news emerged — such as the Cisco project to provide Porto Maravilha with digital access — surprising projects, such as the one that monitored the garbage paths in Seattle, controversial proposals, such as investments to increase the use of solar energy and biogas.

An unprecedented study on Metropolitan Centralities was presented during the program by researcher Maína Celidônio. The research showed some dynamics of development, which reinforce the defense of the densification of cities, raised by many urbanists who are critical of policies that favor the expansion of urbanized areas.

– The more dense, the higher the average income. Areas with a high concentration of jobs are also areas with a higher concentration of skilled workers – noted Maina.

According to the economist, this is due to productivity gains related to the proximity of opportunities and companies. On the other hand, the densest regions are also the ones with the greatest inequality.

– The places that most attract people are also the most dynamic and creative in the cities. And they are also where the problems present themselves. We have to look carefully at these places and incorporate this knowledge into urban planning, so that they develop with more quality and efficiency – said Manuel Thedim, director of the IETS.
