Stakeholder Meeting in Rio de Janeiro

Rio Stakeholder meeting

Stakeholder meetings will be held in the four field sites to disseminate research results through research presentations and active discussions with, and input from, participants. These workshops will include all researchers/PIs, and bring together stakeholders from tourism and urban development agencies, commercial tour companies and community-based organizations. In addition, this project will be able to make a significant societal impact through its relevance to non-academic stakeholders, and its activities aimed at including them.

 

The workshops will create a space for cooperation between different stakeholders (slum residents, policymakers, academics) from all four countries, bringing together actors who are rarely connected.

The first of these stakeholder meetings will be held in Rio from the 10th to the 16th of April 2015.
