    Since 2000, Brazil has developed several strategies in the area of EGOV. Up until now, six different Administrations ran the country. A set of questions are then in place:

    • What did they do?
    • What was their legacy?
    • What has changed in Brazil regarding EGOV concepts, approaches, and initiatives?
    • Which contemporary issues, such OGP co-foundation in 2011, impacted Brazilian EGOV strategies design and implementation?

    In this seminar, Wagner will answer these questions and share with the audience topics related to:

    • Brazilian and Latin America EGOV context;
    • Roles of Brazilian government agencies in EGOV;
    • Main landmarks in Brazilian EGOV evolution and its current status.

    A particular focus on the recent monitoring results of the Brazilian EGOV national strategy will also be held.
