Project Description

The bank states that the general objective is to generate knowledge and information that contribute to the design of a new generation of sustainable rural development policies, programs and projects in Brazil, with special attention to the regions with the highest concentration of rural poverty, sensitive ecosystems and expansion of the agricultural frontier (Amazon, Caatinga and Cerrado). The specific objectives are: a) to analyze the recent changes in the Brazilian rural territorial dynamics and to produce a typology of the territories based on structural conditions and similarity of problems; b) analyze the behavior of economic, social and environmental indicators and factors that influence their evolution, with emphasis on agro-food systems, conservation and use of natural resources and employment and income in agricultural and non-agricultural activities; c) identify lessons learned from the implementation of policies and other initiatives of public, private or third sector organizations; and d) make proposals that contribute to a new generation of public policies and other actions for rural development in Brazil (including non-governmental), based on the scaling up of successful initiatives.
