Resumo


The current model for society’s development, based on the unconscious use of natural resources, points to signs of exhaustion, requiring a reflection in order to formulate strategies that overcome the challenge of coexistence between the relationship between man and nature. The use of tools such as sustainable indicators has been shown to be effective in the identification and understanding of socio-environmental phenomena and in the subsequent decision making by public management, assisting in the resolution of problems, and consequently, acting as a resource for sustainable development. This study aims to propose the development of an urban sustainability indicator for the municipality of Umuarama, in the state of Paraná, Brazil. In order to build the indicator, data from different aspects linked to Sach’s sustainability model are to be collected, and later put into statistical treatment to standardize it and make its comparison possible, resulting in its index, which is expected to analyze the current state of the local sustainability and sustainable development.
