The Brazilian Government divided the planning of priority actions for the World Cup according to the time required to complete the individual projects

Once FIFA announced the host cities for the World Cup, it was possible to focus on the main infrastructure projects in the relevant cities. The Brazilian Government divided the planning of priority actions according to cycles, based on the time required to complete the individual projects

The first cycle focused on infrastructure since this involved long-term projects that needed to be launched immediately. Included in this cycle are those projects covering urban mobility, stadiums, airports, and ports. For this category, the investments required have already been formally confirmed by the various implementing and financing parties involved in the Matrix of Responsibilities.

The second cycle covers actions related to infrastructure and supporting services. The planning for these actions is already underway, and they have a shorter completion timeframe. They involve projects that are about to be completed and cover areas such as security, tourism infrastructure, energy, telecommunications and information technology, in addition to environmental sustainability and the establishment of an action plan to promote the country.

The third cycle includes operational actions. These require early planning, but are not triggered until the run-up of the Tournament; they include air, airport, and port network operations, transport operations, and urban mobility operations. Healthcare and energy operations are also addressed during the third cycle of planning. In addition to operational projects, specific promotion programmes in line with the country promotion plan will be designed for implementation during the World Cup.
