Product Description

Rio de Janeiro is the second most violent city in the world, with on average two police officers being murdered every week. Ruthless drug gangs rule the city;s slums, or favelas. Away from the favelas, the city's beaches, annual Carnival and stunning scenery attract large numbers of tourists. Foreigh businesses are drawn to Rio by its good energy supplies and large commercial and financial sectors. Pollution is severe, but investment in fuel based on locally-grown sugar cane is lowering emissions, and Rio's universities have created a 'green map' to show how residents can care for their environment.
