The Qualicidades seminar, held by Sebrae in partnership with the IETS and the 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 subjects.
The panel on Opportunities and New Financing Models had the participation of the CEO of Sitawi Financeiras do Bem, Leonardo Letelier.
– SIB – Social Impact Bonds (TIS) – offers a more flexible structure for service providers to pursue social results goals with greater effectiveness, transferring the financial risk to the private investor and promoting rational use of resources by creating evidence that enables the integration of interventions into 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 goals of social results, measured by an independent evaluator. The typical duration of an SIB contract is 3 to 7 years.
During the meeting, did any news emerge? such as Cisco's project to provide Porto Maravilha with digital access?, surprising projects, such as the one that monitored Seattle's garbage paths, 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 so many urban planners who are critical of policies that favor the expansion of urbanized areas.
– The denser, the higher the average income. Areas with a high concentration of jobs are also areas with a higher concentration of qualified workers – observed Maina.
According to the economist, this occurs due to productivity gains related to the proximity of opportunities and companies. On the other hand, the densest regions are also those with the greatest inequality.
– The places that most attract people are also the most dynamic and creative cities. And they are also where the problems arise. 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.
