The four-week workshop was coordinated with local and federal institutions to develop projects and policy proposals for long-range sustainable planning efforts related to the SUAPE International Port development project on the Pernambuco coast. The port represents one of the largest current investments for the Brazilian federal government, and the federally owned PETROBRAS oil company. The team of 30 students and tutors worked closely with consultants from the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB), and benefited tremendously from the generous support of the Brazilian small and medium businesses development agency, SEBRAE (at both the regional and federal level). As a final outcome, the EcoPolis International Master presented a series of recommendations and information about how the federal, state and municipal governments can better capitalize on the tremendous amount of investment and attention that has been afforded the Pernambuco region as a result of activities related to the SUAPE Port development.
