Montevideo

Montevideo’s Resilience Journey

Montevideo’s most important sources of income are generated by agricultural and livestock production, particularly soy, beef, and dairy. However, fluctuations in global commodity prices and less effective domestic production methods have contributed to an economic slowdown, leading to rising unemployment in the capital. The impact of this stress is compounded by declining tax revenue, which renders the city unable to adequately maintain public services including urban transportation, waste management, and neighborhood clinics.

Montevideo also faces the environmental challenge of rainfall flooding, which disproportionately affects vulnerable populations living on flood plains. The city hopes to build resilience through early warning systems, clear evacuation plans, and mechanisms to recover lost property.
