Decentralization and Local Development Commitment no. 2: “Decentralization and Local Development” In public spending, prioritize action plans developed through social participation, discussing and deliberating collectively on local demands, respecting municipal participatory councils, agents and users of public facilities and other local participatory bodies, and also ensuring availability and accessibility of the public budget by region and agency and facility. Commitment start and end date: January/2019 - August/2020 Lead implementing agency/actor Municipal Secretariat of Subprefectures (SMSUB) Commitment description What is the public problem that the commitment will address? During the co-creation process, civil society pointed out that there was no guarantee of execution of action plans built through participation, as there was no provision for implementation budget, or even the postponement of its development. This is the case of the Regional Action Plans and Neighborhood Plans, foreseen in “Plano Diretor Estratégico” (Municipal Law No. 16,050/2014, with guidelines on the city development and expansion), whose development and implementation deadline was not met (as provided by Decree 57,537/2016). Overall objective(s) and expected result(s) By implementing this commitment, we seek to make feasible the development of the aforementioned plans in a participatory manner, as provided by the legislation, and in dialogue with the Municipal Participatory Councils and their respective territories. The development and implementation of the aforementioned Plans are expected to be carried out through a participatory process, detailing the guidelines included in “Plano Diretor Estratégico” within each of the 32 Subprefectures. The action should articulate sectorial and complementary policies and proposals related to urban-environmental issues in their physical and territorial aspects. How will the commitment contribute to solve the public problem? The commitment provides for not only the development, but also the implementation of the Regional Action Plans and Neighbourhood Plans. Since they are elaborated, it is possible to seek to put them on the municipal budget planning agenda, aiming at their prioritization in public spending. In addition, the implementation of this commitment, as well as the other ones in this Action Plan, also contributes indirectly to the solution of the problem pointed out. 22 Why is this commitment relevant to OGP values? In seeking to ensure the development and implementation of the aforementioned plans, the commitment helps strengthen the spaces and tools for participation, enabling citizens to indicate their regional needs and priorities.
