Resumo

This paper contributes to the study of climate change and environmental justice with
a particular focus on a Global South case-study in the São Paulo Macro Metropolis of
Brazil. We also aim to contribute to mandatory critical dialogue between (anticipatory) governance and environmental justice. This study focuses on the rainy seasons
from 2016 to 2019. We examine the incidence of 61 extreme precipitation events, as
well as 47 deaths caused by rain events, considering their location based on vulnerability indicators. The correlations among these data allow us to reveal the socioenvironmental patterns within the relationships between social vulnerability and
deaths caused by general rainfall and, more specifically, extreme events. Based on
this, we demonstrate that current infrastructure or its lack is one of the reasons why
death tolls remain due to the absence of anticipatory governance.
