1. Be environmentally friendly.

2. Deal with mobility and integration.

3. Be socially integrated.

4. Use technology to be present.

Questions:

    Paes is right. However, I think he’s just politicking. Running a city of this size there is much missing from his message. For instance health and food safety must be a huge issue in Rio. I’d like to know more about the clinics, food delivery, health care, and who the city is replacing when it builds through the middle of the favelas. These are ghettos! Paes has safely skirted the real problems of Rio de Janeiro by pitching environment and technology to an American audience.
