Observatory Belem

This is an AIH proposal made to the Brazil Antenna in response to the warning issued by the regional Alert System regarding removals and the potential negative consequences of the 100 million dollar investment to remodel the city in the build-up to the forthcoming WSF in 2008 and the FIFA World Cup in 2014. The work will lead to the demolition of stilt homes and probably of other buildings as well. Local social movements are sceptical as to whether the inhabitants of these houses will be relocated adequately and in a consensual manner.

Objectives of the Monitoring Project:

  • to monitor urban change
  • to support participatory proposals for improvements to housing and cities
  • to establish international exchange and solidarity links
