Regulatory Framework of Walking Mobility
The Como Anda project, which is a meeting point for organizations that promote walking mobility in Brazil has, as one of the main objectives of its third phase (2019/2020), the contribution to the strengthening of institutions that work with advocacy/political incidence in the 2020 Municipal Elections. One of the methods is the Regulatory Framework of Walking Mobility, which is a new design tool that maps all the laws, decrees, rules, and other documents that regulate aspects of the walking mobility network. It includes information from nine Brazilian cities: São Paulo (SP), Belo Horizonte (MG), Rio de Janeiro (RJ), Recife (PE), Brasilia (DF), Curitiba (PR), Florianópolis (SC), Goiânia (GO), and Porto Alegre (RS).
The intention is to show that the priority for the pedestrian is always present in the principles, the guidelines, and the objectives of the laws – even so, the provisions that effectively bring practical results to modify the Brazilian network of walking mobility, used by two thirds of the population every day, are rare. Take a look and consult the tool, and also read the full text from Como Anda about the topic here.
