In order to achieve the Eight UN Millennium Goals, the Odebrecht Foundation and Bahia State Public Prosecutor’s Office (MP-BA) signed a Technical Cooperation Agreement and defined an agenda of events that will be promoted by the institutions during the year 2013.
The document establishes that the integrated actions should take place within the two entities’ scopes of operation. In the case of the MP-BA, within the sphere of the Public Prosecutor’s Office (MP) Program, focused on Quality Health and Education for All, as well as at the Odebrecht Foundation, through the Bahia Southern Lowlands Environmental Protection Area Mosaic Program for Development and Growth Integrated with Sustainability (PDCIS).
Public Prosecutor Clodoaldo Anunciação, who came up with the MP Program, reinforced that the partnership with the Odebrecht Foundation had already been in place. “Last year, we established partnerships at other projects, specifically in the municipalities of Nilo Peçanha, Valença and Piraí do Norte, said Anunciação. “Now, we will concentrate our efforts on the Millennium Goals,” he said.
The actions will include meetings, lectures, seminars, studies and academic publications, among other initiatives designed to disseminate knowledge about the Bahia community. The proposal is to bring the Public Prosecutor’s Office and Odebrecht Foundation closer to society by looking into problems in the areas of cooperation, answering the population’s questions about their basic given rights.
