Belo Horizonte

About Belo Horizonte, Brazil

Capital of the Minas Gerais state, Belo Horizonte has been a reference for sustainable development on the region and a frontrunner on the issues of connectivity and food security. The city has led the establishment of the Green and Blue Net that maps and prioritizes green areas of the region, providing decision-makers with solid reference for investing on connectivity. INTERACT-Bio has worked along with the municipality to endorse this process through the mapping of Ecosystem Services provision as well as the promotion of agroforestry and food security agendas as enhancing initiatives.
