This reporter will cover socio-environmental-health issues from the point of view of the people most impacted by violations of their rights: the residents of low-income neighborhoods of Grande Sao Paulo, the largest metropolitan area of South America. Under the editorial section “sobre-viver” (“survive”, but also translated as “about-living”), the reporter will also cover health and food security issues, especially linked to public policies/infrastructures. The coverage will also look for possible solutions, and we hope it will bring a more comprehensive understanding of these complex issues, especially to the residents of those areas.
