This Tuesday (29), the Ministry of Regional Development (MDR) participated in the opening of the 19th National Science and Technology Week, which took place in the exhibition pavilion Parque da Cidade, in Brasilia (DF). The event is promoted annually by the Ministry of Science, Technology and Innovation (MCTI), in partnership with public institutions and state and municipal governments. The exhibition will be open to visitors until Sunday, December 4 and has the theme “Bicentennial of Independence: 200 Years of Science, Technology and Innovation in Brazil”.
One of the highlights of the MDR booth is the presentation of the São Francisco River Integration Project. Other pasta actions that can be known in space are environmental programs aimed at water security, in areas such as animal and plant conservation and archaeological asset rescue.
“When we went to plan the Águas Brasileiras programme, we relied heavily on the partnership with MCTI, precisely because together we could plan such a successful project, which has already raised more than R$85 million. Together with the Transposition of the São Francisco River, we have implemented Archeology project, with investments of more than R$ 80 million in the salvage of archaeological and fossil materials so that we know our past, know what we are doing in the present, announced the National Secretary of Water Security, Sergio Costa, who represented the MDR at the inauguration of the SNCT.
The Ministry of Regional Development’s wing also contains a room from a residential prototype from the Casa Verde Amarela programme, aimed at social housing. Visitors will also be able to learn about the system for sending disaster alerts via WhatsApp from the National Civil Defense, details about the legal framework for basic sanitation, urban development programs and partnerships with the private sector to fund actions in sectors served by pasta, among others.
The Minister of Science, Technology and Innovations, Paulo Alvim, highlighted the impact of SNCT in training new talent for Brazilian science. When we visit each booth, we notice new actors, young actors. We have spoken with the boys and girls who are in SNCT and we see the pride in presenting their experiences and solutions to their areas and needs,” he affirmed.
