The Sustainability and Citizenship Networks of Porto Alegre and story of Chocolatão

This report documents the findings of a lengthy research project conducted over a four year period (2012 to 2016) which aimed to retrospectively map the history of the resettlement of the Vila Chocolatão community in Porto Alegre and to identify and document the processes, aspirations and actions of the cross-sectoral network group that worked alongside the resettlement through the ‘Vila Chocolatão Social Inclusion project’ from 2005 to 2012. It also presents the network model that developed from this initial work and its application in three other vulnerable communities in Port Alegre; Vila Santo André, Vila Santa Teresinha and Ilhas (2013 - 2016). The report is 112 pages and 5 MB.
