The WWP Series of Case Studies – which shows good productive inclusion practices - reaches its third issue and reveals the experience of the city of Senador Canedo, located in the metropolitan area of Goiânia, in the Brazilian state of Goiás. The municipality has made important progress with the participation of local policy makers in mobilizing target audiences, mediating the relationship with the labor market in order to define adequate professional training to meet local demand and assisting students in finding job opportunities. In addition, the Secretariats for Labor and Social Assistance have created a decisive task force to reduce desertion of low-income students.
The first publication of the WWP series on the Food Purchase Program (PAA) serves as an introduction to the project, which has created ways to stimulate the practice of family farming through public procurement and to promote access to food for populations at risk of food insecurity. It also offers up to date data on the number of suppliers and consumers, program coverage and purchases volume.
The second document in the Food Purchase Program (PAA) series is particularly relevant to policy makers for detailing the operation and the financial support of the program’s purchasing modalities, such as the beneficiaries targeting and the actions of the entities involved in each one.
The third publication in the WWP series on the Food Purchase Program (PAA) explains the project’s institutional articulation, which maintains the formulation and drafting of guidelines centralized in the federal government, but decentralizes implementation at local level. It includes an organizational chart of the organisations involved in management.
The fourth publication of the WWP series on the Food Purchase Program (PAA) narrates the project’s chronological path, passing through the legislations and innovations that accompanied its development until its present form.
This report recounts the experience of NGO Ateliê das ideias (Workshop of ideas) and Banco Bem (Bank Well), in Vitória, state of Espírito Santo. This bank has become a national reference for community institutions aimed at fostering development and its relevance has been recognized by the Brazilian Central Bank. This is the fourth case in the WWP Series of Productive Inclusion Reports, which describes the planning process and actions undertaken by state and city governments under the scope of the Brazil Without Poverty Plan (BSM), created in 2011 to eradicate extreme poverty in the country.
The first WWP Case Study - part of a series on successful productive inclusion initiatives in Brazil - features the Bahia State Government's Better Life (Vida Melhor) Program, launched in 2011 with a focus on vulnerable citizens working informally (e.g. street vendors, trash pickers and craft artists), excluded from formal labor markets and often ignored by official aid mechanisms. Through an innovative approach, the program developed a specific strategy aimed at the needs of this target group: self-employed, low-income workers, whose main characteristic is not differentiating the work resources from the family’s expenses.
The second WWP Case Study - part of a series on successful productive inclusion initiatives in Brazil - shows different approaches to providing food security, income and social inclusion to poor family farmers in the hinterland of the São Francisco River, state of Bahia. The technical assistance and rural extension (ATER) initiatives for family production projects were developed by the Regional Institute for Appropriate Small-Scale Agriculture (IRPAA) between 2013 and 2016. The outcomes have been successful thanks to the flexibility of the project terms and the collective and participatory methodology implemented by the IRPAA in the diagnosis and project design stages.
