Abstract [en]

This essay’s aim is to investigate the planning, management and effects of the Favela Bairro Project. It was one of the largest upgrading projects for informal settlements of all time. The slow shift in Brazil’s housing policy concerning in formal settlements lead to the possibility of the Favela Bairro Project. The project’s aim was to physically upgrade houses, roads, sewer systems, streets and parks; build schools and public spaces; strengthen the social and physical security of the inhabitants and solve ownership questions. The project had a positive effect on the physical structure of the favela and increased access to sanitary systems and .improved the cityscape. The project did not have any visible effect on the socio-economical conditions in the affected areas and lacked social efforts of the same magnitude as the physical ones. Parts of the physical upgrading lacked maintenance work post-project and some of the newly built areas have been annexed by local criminal gangs. The Favela Bairro Project has been selected by the UN to serve as a model for similar projects. The main financier of the project, the Inter-American Development Bank, has declared that the project was their most successful poverty reduction project thus far.
