Abstract

Rio de Janeiro’s Integrated Command and Control Center (CICC-RJ ) has already seen duty in several large scale events which happened in town, some planned, others not.  CICC-RJ is part of Rio de Janeiro state’s response to the Brazilian national government’s mandate to improve the state’s ability to anticipate and respond coherently to public safety events in the region.  Its infrastructure is intended to enable and promote local agencies’ ability to anticipate, plan, monitor, and respond to public safety events by sharing operational intelligence and acting in concert. The aim of this paper is to explore some of the CICC-RJ issues where fragility and resilience were at play during the operational management of the 2014 World Cup in Rio de Janeiro, as the CICC-RJ seeks to enhance its capabilities to promote resilience in preparation for the 2016 Olympics in Brazil.
