Fluvial Metropolis is a joint research program dealing with megacities and water infrastructure organized by the University of São Paulo and Princeton University Strategic Partnership for Teaching and Research. The research focusses on the Metropolitan Waterway Ring of Sao Paulo, known as the Hidroanel project, a network of navigable canals organized through ports along the waterway — origin ports where the cargo is deposited – and transported to destination ports where the waste is selected, recycled, processed, bio-digested or reutilized and in the last instance incinerated with the goal of arriving to a policy of zero landfill when the project is completed in the year 2040.
