Agenda Pública develops capabilities and solutions for public policies implementation, coordinating partnerships among local governments, civil society, and private companies. It does this by providing technical assistance and training for local public administrators, for them to better manage their municipalities, apart from offering seminars, workshops and mentoring to administrators on the structuring of city councils, policy development, strategic planning, project and budget management, public service implementation, monitoring, and evaluation. The organization provides these services across a wide range of municipal government agencies including education, housing, sanitation, and health.
Agenda Pública currently works in six states at the regional level, expanding into the Amazon to address the dire need of municipalities with the most marginalized communities. At the national level, the organization has created a programme called Escola de Políticas Públicas (School of Public Policy) that provides educational solutions like mentoring and interchange programs, online courses and other learning programmes.
