The Municipality of Aparecida de Goiania (PMAG) is the second largest city in the state of Goias with a population of more than 600,000. Since the 1990s, PMAG has been transforming from a dormitory city to one of the five industrial hubs in the state, currently representing 10% of the state's industrial output with over 2,000 industries ranging from the agriculture to pharmaceutical sectors. This transformation has caused a 238% linear population increase and led to disorderly expansion of neighborhoods resulting in urban mobility issues with limited local access and long commutes, and a social unbalance in access to public education and in quality of life overall.
A direct contribution to PMAG's Social Mobility Program by tackling urban development on two fronts: mobility and social infrastructure, aiming to resolve key challenges arisen from the fast population growth in the past decades.
The Project comprises the following key components:i) Street Pavement - Includes streets in 115 neighborhoods, for a total length of approximatively 214 km, to achieve 100% of the city street network paved.ii) Bridges, Underpasses and Overpasses - Construction of four bridges, two underpasses and two overpasses to improve mobility and connectivity.iii) Park Urbanization - Four parks covering a total area of approximatively 351,000 m2.iv) School Buildings - Construction of 15 school buildings, including 11 for early childhood education (ages zero to five) and four elementary schools (ages five to ten).

ACCOUNTABILITY MECHANISM OF NEW DEVELOPMENT BANK
The New Development Bank (NDB) does not currently have an independent accountability mechanism to accept complaints related to NDB-financed projects. The Bank does have a whistleblower mechanism that receives complaints about misconduct related to corruption, fraudulent practices and instances of money laundering in projects financed by the NDB and/or against the NDB staff members. To learn more about the whistleblower mechanism and how to file a complaint, access this webpage at: https://www.ndb.int/about-us/whistleblowing/.
