Curitiba, Brazil

2012 challenge

The city government of Curitiba has taken major steps in making information widely accessible using tools that foster sharing data among government agencies and the general public. The city has used a number of outlets to track their results/outputs, share data/information, and obtain feedback/input from the Curitiba community. Although Curitiba’s path to modernization has served as a model for several cities in Brazil, especially in regard to improving transparency and accountability, the city continues to face the challenge of how to add intelligence to its operational structure. The IBM team delivered a strategy for an Integrated Co-Created City focused on social and economic Growth, a city management model, and citizen engagement.
