The complexity of the current dynamics of institutional functioning, whether of international or subnational regimes, has raised the importance of new governance arrangements at their various scales. This project aims to discuss and apply theoretical models that contribute to the understanding of the process of formulating environmental public policies. The analysis will focus on the process of forming the agenda (agenda-setting), seeking to investigate how a specific issue becomes important at a given time, focusing government attention and integrating its agenda. The specific objective will be to test two methodologies applied to governance models and public policies for the São Paulo Macrometropolis. One based on Institutional Diagnosis, aimed at understanding processes and institutional arrangements, as well as their practitioners. The second is the application of Kingdon model to understand why the formation of a megarregion by the Government of São Paulo. In that sense the aim and relevance of this project is to contribute in two fronts within the environment governance arena: one is new tools and methodologies for an innovative and governance practice for the territory of São Paulo Macrometropolis. The other is to benefit all the 5 groups of the Thematic Project "Governança Ambiental da Macrometrópole Paulista face à variabilidade climática" (15/03804-9) with these new instruments in a social learning and co-creation process.
