    “Brazil Without Extreme Poverty” Plan: Federative coordination PT EN ES FR

    WWP – 10/2015

    One of the reasons for the results of the “Brazil Without Extreme Poverty” Plan stems from the involvement of all the entities of the Federation in the fight against extreme poverty. The states created their own plans to complement the Bolsa Família Program. Meanwhile, the municipalities played an important role in the management of the Unified Registry and the Bolsa Família, as well as providing social assistance and health and education services. Joint efforts by all the Federative entities were essential for overcoming extreme poverty.

  • The document shows how Latin America and Caribbean countries, after a decade of poverty reduction, should overcome expectations of lower growth and monetary tightening to maintain and improve their social protection systems, which costs will increase. The first part retraces these nations’ routes to reduce income inequality; the second highlights the need to protect the most vulnerable population by enumerating successful practices in the region focused in the labor market and the fiscal health of their social welfare systems.

  • Many studies have cast light on the dynamic character of the poverty phenomenon — poverty cycles propagate themselves, and individuals as well as households both enter and exit a situation of deprivation. However, most antipoverty policies are based on indicators constructed with cross-sectional data, which simply reflect the situation of individuals at a particular moment. If an antipoverty policy aims to ensure minimum income and welfare for a family, static measures may underestimate the poverty rate and exclude potential beneficiaries that have frequent deprivation cycles with intervals of non-poverty in between.

    Social Protection, Entrepreneurship and Labour Market Activation EN

    IPC-IG – 09/2015

    In its 32th number, IPC-IG’s Policy in Focus magazine addresses labor market challenges within social protection systems. Despite significant development gains in recent decades, developing countries still face considerable challenges in regards to the fight against poverty and hunger. Redistributive cash transfer programs have emerged as vital for the pursuit of poverty reduction and eradication; however, critics have expressed concerns that such social grants could lead to dependency among beneficiaries, dissuade them from seeking work, or reinforce traditional gender roles.

    Integrated Data and Information Management for Social Protection

    IPC-IG – 08/2015

    In recent years there has been great focus on coordinating and harmonising systems for social protection. This has led to growing interest in exploring ways to integrate data and better handle information management across multiple programmes. The most cited example of such integration is Brazil’s celebrated Cadastro Único (Single Registry, the term the article uses to describe such poverty databases), yet several other countries have been recently adopting innovative solutions and defining best practices that are still widely undocumented.
