Recife, Brazil

About Recife

Recife has been improving its urban systems towards a more sustainable and circular urban development. Having agroecology-driven urban agriculture as the city’s circular flagship, Recife has joined the Milan Food Pact and launched its First Municipal Agroecology Plan and became a Milan Pacto (MUFPP) member in 2021. The Municipal Agroecology Plan, which is connected to the Climate Action Plan, provides a clear strategy to enhance healthy food production and consumption supported by shorter distribution chains as well as improve food security through circular-oriented public policies. Sustainable waste management is also a priority and Recife has shown its commitment to this sector as it is hosting the International Conference on Solid Waste in 2022.
