Morar Carioca is a co-initiative from the Brazilian Federal government, Rio de Janeiro municipality and the Olympic Games 2016 Committee, with a budget of billions of dollars and having as goal to redesign the Rio de Janeiro slums (known as favelas) and to integrate them to the formal city.

Considering the construction of healthy clinics, schools, transport infrastructure, leisure facilities and house schemes in the slums, the programme Morar Carioca is considered as part of the "social legacies" of the Olympic Games that will be held in Rio de Janeiro in 2016.

The Brazilian government will hire the 30 best proposals and the 5 top ones will get the largest slum areas with around 100,000 to 200,000 dwellers each.

Unfortunately, most of the news about the competition and the programme are in Portuguese. But here is an article from the Guardian about the Morar Carioca programme:
