A youth-led digital mapping project has been running in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil since 2011 and is still having a large positive impact on the “mapped” communities. The themes explored included sanitation and accumulation of garbage. This video, produced by BemTV with support from the community partner CEDAPS, is a recap of the two-year project in 11 Favelas in Rio. The mapping project model has been an inspiration for the Safe and Sustainable Cities initiative (UN Habitat & UN Women) focusing on theme of violence against women and girls in Brazil.
