Agenda in practice

To amplify our impact, we dedicate ourselves to better understand the collective needs and the profile of the citizens. We develop capabilities and governance models that are more collaborative and transparent. We increase the opportunities of funding for the policies, reduce the bureaucracy and reduce middlemen in the processes so we can bring closer the State and the citizens through more relevant services. Meet our work in loco:


Complex public problems can only be faced in a intersectoral and collaborative manner, creating shared visions and institutional capabilities. That’s why Agenda works to build plans with the participation of different stakeholders.  It acts to refine processes and monitoring routines, and build collaborative governance models, developing good teams motivated to implement the solutions. Where and with whom: Pauí, with the United Nations Development Programme; Serra do Salitre (MG) and Campo Alegre de Lourdes (BA), with Instituto Lina Galvani; Barro Alto (GO) and Niquelândia (GO), with Anglo American; State of Pará, in Secretaria de Educação, by Consórcio Pró-Educação, funded by BID.



The program is structured as a set of measures to improve the transparency, enhance the mechanisms for internal control, stimulate social participation and promote ethics. Where and with whom: São Sebastião (SP), with Construtora Queiroz Galvão; in Antonina, Guaratuba, Matinhos, Morretes, Paranaguá and Pontal do Paraná, that integrate Litoral Transparente, and on Cerrado region of Minas Gerais, with Techint Engenharia e Construção.



Agenda also works to support the municipal administrations to organize their economic agents, attract investments and coordinate actions that create new economic opportunities. The program promotes the cooperation between municipal institutions and companies interested in working in these territories. Where and with whom: Serra do Salitre (MG), with Instituto Lina Galvani and Yara; Alto Horizonte (GO), with Instituto Yamana de Desenvolvimento Sustentável; Canaã dos Carajás (PA), with Fundação Vale.



The municipalities are the most impaired by economic crisis, since they already deal with an unequal resource distribution among federal entities. This program focuses in increasing the efficiency of their own revenue and the expense reduction, guaranteeing the management of active debt, developing local capabilities, encouraging communication among stakeholders, and developing leaderships aligned with those purposes. Where and with whom: Serra do Salitre (MG), with Instituto Lina Galvani and Yara.



The Public Service User Defense Act (13.460/2017) establishes basic norms for the participation and defense of the citizen. The new legislation represents a great advance, but it still must be implemented.  The Agenda helps public institutions in personalization and simplification of their offered services, organizes processes, analyses user needs, builds service letters, and strengthen the relationship with citizens, establishing simple and smart indicators. Where and with whom: West in Pará, with MRN and USAID.



The ODSlab is an innovative model for answering the challenges defined by UN as the Sustainable Development Goals. Starting from real situations, representatives of different sectors of society work together to produce solutions that overcome the big challenges predicted in the 2030 Agenda. Each edition is dedicated to a SDG relevant to the local in point, focusing in practical and lasting results. The Agenda also works on the construction of a platform for the systematization of fast impact actions, with low complexity solutions and measurable impact at short-term.  In alliance with Fundação Abrinw, FNP and CNM, the organization also counts with funding from the European Union to promote the implementation of the SDG on national territory. Experiences: public transparency (Manaus/AM), economic development (Mossoró/RN), urban mobility (Piracicaba/SP), sanitation (Macapá/AP), social economical integration for refugees (government of São Paulo), local development, employment and income (municipalities of Brazilian Amazon).



Cooperation is fundamental for the work of Agenda Pública on the territories where it take action. This approach could not be different on the institutional perspective around strategic themes, be it in partnerships, networks or coalitions. In these environments, we influence and we receive influence, maximizing the impact of our work. Where and with whom: Estratégia ODS; Movimento Agora; Pacto pela Democracia; Coalizão Clima, Floresta e Agricultura; Redes Temáticas do GIFE, Rede de Advocacy Coletivo and Rede pela Transparência e Participação Social, all of which with national coverage.
