    Strategic Sectors


    Given its transversality, Water was one of the sectors considered bearers of the future. The availability of water resources in the quantity and quality necessary for human and animal consumption and productive activities is an essential condition for the development of any economy, directly impacting investment decisions and the ability to retain and attract highly qualified human capital. Furthermore, strengthening the environment for innovation and business in water resources will allow the State to position itself differently in providing solutions related to the rationalization of the use of these resources and the development of businesses and technologies related to the topic.

    Public Safety

    A major challenge for the state is associated with the increase in crime and the strengthening of the activities of criminal factions, representing a threat to the attraction of investments and reflecting in the loss of competitiveness of the state. According to the Atlas of Violence (2020), in 2018, there were 57,956 homicides in Brazil, with Ceará having one of the highest rates (54 per 100,000 inhabitants). Facing this scenario, the importance of planning, synergistic action, and understanding of best practices has increased to contribute to the prevention and control of violence and crime. The complexity of the issue requires a systemic view of public security for adequate confrontation, considering the different spheres of necessary integration. Primary, secondary, and tertiary prevention are highlighted, with the productive sector being one of the most powerful agents of transformation in this context. The Public Security sector, therefore, includes the spheres of Prevention and Governance, Prison and Socio-educational systems, and Public Security and Social Defense.

In this direction, the development of the sector would also determine greater use of existing data infrastructure assets, such as submarine fiber optic cables and the Digital Belt, connecting the main municipalities of Ceará to Europe and North America. Furthermore, as it is a technology and knowledge intensive sector, and without significant barriers to entry, Information and Communication Technology enables the creation of a differentiated dynamic, with great opportunities for innovative entrepreneurship and the generation of high-paying jobs.

    Creative Economy and Tourism

    The tourist potential of several regions of the State, as well as the current relevance of the sector, not only in the generation of employment and income but also in the demand for industrial products, were the motivations that led several specialists to prioritize Tourism in several panels carried out by the project. In the same direction, the sectors that make up the Creative Economy were identified as strategic in all regions of the State, bringing together activities related to knowledge, culture, creativity, and intellectual capacity, making it evident not only the transversality of these sectors but also the positive impact that their development would bring to the aggregation of value of industrial products, the strengthening of cultural identity and entrepreneurship in the State. This way, Tourism and Creative Economy were united in a single route in order to strengthen the relationship of the actors that make up these sectors and thus strengthen the mutual gains obtained through the joint development of these activities.
