The Big Data for Sustainable Urban Development project is developed by the Fundação Getulio Vargas with funding from the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) and support from Waze, which creates a unique opportunity to develop a pilot model of massive data governance with four cities and a district in Latin America: São Paulo (Brazil), Montevideo (Uruguay), Quito (Ecuador), Xalapa (Mexico) and Miraflores (Peru), respectively.

The FGV, as Executing Agency, coordinates the activities of three components of the project, which is expected to be carried out by 2020:

  1. Component I - Mapping of Data Ecosystem and Regulatory Frameworks;
  2. Component II - Development of Legal and Institutional Resources for Big Data Access and Analysis; and
  3. Component III - Development of Massive Data Analysis and Visualization Tools and Project Dissemination
