Train municipal technicians in the items required for land tenure regularization in areas at risk.


The Technological Research Institute (IPT) of the State of São Paulo is one of the largest research institutes in Brazil, which has qualified laboratories and a team of highly qualified researchers and technicians, basically working in four major areas – innovation, research & development; technological services; metrology development & support, and technology information & education. They are the organizers of this workshop, which aims to present the legislation relevant to the current issue in Brazil, presenting the methodology adopted for mapping areas at risk of landslides and riverbank undermining, as well as the environmental studies required by law in the land regularization project.



  1. Introduction to Risk Management
  2. Methodology for mapping risk areas
  3. Legislation applied to land regularization
  4. Environmental study: content
  5. case examples


Not applicable

Aspects to highlight

The environmental studies required for land tenure regularization address the mapping of the risk situation, the indication of the necessary interventions to reduce the degree of risk, as well as the permanent environmental preservation areas that affect the location.

Target public

Municipal technicians, students and researchers in the areas of urban planning and civil protection.


The workshop will be held in Poruguese and there will be no translation.

Practical Case

It will involve mapping an area through the presentation of aerial photographs (drone/van photos) and field photographs of a given area, indication of measures to reduce the degrees of risk and highlight the areas that can be regularized.
