    What are the politics of poverty? EN

    admin – 03/2014

    What are the politics of poverty? Brazil’s move to reshape its development shows how aligning social and economic policies, transferring cash to poor families (97% to women) and offering public services to those who most need them can have multiple benefits. This article from Brazil’s former president, Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva, was published on OECD’s Development Co-operation Report 2013.

  • Starting from the premise that poverty is not simply lack of resources, but also a relation through which the poor come directly under State control, the author explores the place of Cash Transfer Programs (CCTs) such as Mexico’s Oportunidades Program in the evolution of social policy and citizenship in Latin America, assessing the impact of these programmes in terms of poor peoples’ perceptions of their rights and the quality of their civic participation.

  • Food Security

    Food Security as a Pathway to Productive Inclusion: Lessons from Brazil and India PT EN ES

    IPC-IG – 04/2011

    Although Brazil and India have quite different agrarian structures and specific classifications for farmers, in both countries the proportion of disadvantaged rural groups in the total population, especially smaller-scale producers, is significant. The two countries have instituted large-scale procurement programs whereby the government purchases agricultural goods that support farmers’ livelihoods by offering advantageous market alternatives. These initiatives reconcile trade opportunities for producers with the provision of goods to vulnerable populations.
