Plano Brasil sem Miseria

General information

The "Plano Brasil Sem Miseria" was created to support the 16 million people that still live in extreme poverty and have not been able to enroll in current social programs like "Bolsa Familia", much less have access to essential services such as water, electricity, education, health and housing. The Plan seeks to support these people, identifying, delivering social assistance, helping them seek other forms of income and improve their living conditions. To accomplish this, the Plan is preparing a Poverty Map in the country and a National Opportunity Map, in order to identify the most efficient for people aforementioned to improve their living conditions means.

The reality of the Brazilian countryside and cities have different faces and needs, therefore Brasil Sem Miseria has national and regional actions based on three axes: income guarantee, productive inclusion and access to public services. The Plan delivers cash transfers, access to public services (education, health, welfare, sanitation and electricity, and productive inclusion. All operate by a set of programs and initiatives that include the most vulnerable population in the opportunities generated by strong economic growth Brazilian.

  • Technical assistance: The most vulnerable farmers will have continued and individualized accompaniment by professional teams. The Brazilian Agricultural Research Corporation will introduce technologies appropriate to each family and thereby increase their production.
  • Development and seeds: The Plan supports families in extreme poverty in food production and marketing of production. Each family will receive the amount of US $ 1,000, payable in biannual installments over two years to purchase inputs and equipment.
  • Program Water for All: It seeks to benefit 750 thousand families with the construction of tanks and collective simplified systems; equally they will benefit from water systems for production.
  • Market access: This is the framework for the Programa de Aquisição de Alimentos (PAA), through which the Federal Government buys production to donate to charity entities or for the formation of stocks.
  • Purchase production: Extension of public procurement for hospitals, universities, prisons, kindergartens and also for the private supply network, such as supermarkets and restaurants that will be able to sell most vulnerable farmer’s products.

These include:

Thus a more inclusive promotion of economic growth shall be rendered, creating new job opportunities and income.
  • Qualification of Labor: The goal is to insert the beneficiaries of the Bolsa Familia in the labor market through training courses in line with economic work in each region.
  • Public Intermediation of Labor: It shall be carried out considering all mapped opportunities with public and private companies. They will primarily benefit members of the Bolsa Familia and people between 18 and 65 years.
