Description

The Brazilian strategy for reducing poverty, hunger, and inequality (2003 -2015) and what is at stake now!

Different studies show that Brazil underwent significant social changes between 2003-2015. Undernourishment was reduced by 82% and over 36 million people (mostly black) were taken out of extreme poverty and given access to water, sewage, education, and consumer goods. Why, then, was it so necessary to interrupt this trajectory?

Speaker Bio:

She was the minister of Social Development and Fight against Hunger between 2011 and 2016, during the presidency of Dilma Rousseff. In this role, Min. Campello oversaw the implementation of key poverty alleviation programmes, including “Brazil sem Miséria” (Brazil without Extreme Poverty) and the globally known CCT programme, Bolsa Família.
