The IBGE in the recovery of planning for sustainable eco-development

The severity of climate events that have been taking place in the national territory calls for a recovery of the role of planning in sustainable socioeconomic eco-development.

At this time, with special attention to the state and municipalities of Rio Grande do Sul devastated by rains, the IBGE couldn't refrain from contributing to the actions currently in progress, developed by the federal, state, and municipal governments, especially in cities with large parts of their territory damaged by floods.

This calls for a repositioning of the IBGE Work Plan established for the year 2024, and thus the decision by the Institute's management is to create a task force bringing together its civil servants and specialized technicians, to offer resources that will allow the recovery of national planning, especially in the territory of Rio Grande do Sul, which will require a sum of efforts to face the results of this tragedy.

The IBGE, as the country's main public survey institution, with the most accurate and extensive registers, maps and datasets that allow to construct a response to what is needed for the state of Rio Grande do Sul, has decided to bring forward the release of the microdata from the National Addresses File for Statistical Purposes (CNEFE) to this Tuesday, May 21, at 10am.

The address data for Rio Grande do Sul, and from each of the over than 106 million addresses collected in the 2022 Demographic Census, will be released with the full address attributes, according to the standard used by the IBGE, including street, number and modifying code, complement, locality, ZIP code, type of unit visited, type of building, establishments’ names and more. The data dictionary will also be made available with a characterization of the content and a document with guidelines for using these data due to the change of release date.

This action is added to others that the Institute has been developing with the same purpose in RS, such as providing vehicles to rescue and transport victims of the rains and flooding, or mobilizing civil servants into humanitarian aid, in which the team went into the field to help transport people rescued by boats in flooded areas of Porto Alegre, and distribute donations and potable water, working side by side with other volunteers. Around 8,000 liters were delivered by the IBGE employees in the institute's vehicles to hospitals, shelters, associations and community kitchens in Porto Alegre.

Following this line of action was the launch of the SINGED Lab, the Institute’s innovation laboratory, formed by a multidisciplinary team of civil servants from different areas, with the aim of sharing technical, statistical, geoscientific and data information produced by the IBGE and centralized in the National System of Geosciences, Statistics and Data (SINGED).

When it was created in 1936, the IBGE was crucial in establishing the territorial bases that allowed Brazil to build a modern industrial urban society, based on consolidated technical planning.

In this new context, where the devastating effects of climate change are escalating, it is necessary to overcome the fragmentation and sectoral disintegration of information. Through open source data, the experimentation that constitutes laboratories for technical innovations, and with almost ninety years of technical expertise, the IBGE is at the disposal of the Brazilian state to offer support that will enable the country to mitigate and eventually overcome the adverse effects of climate change in the consolidation and development of the network of applied public policies.
