Join Joana Mostafa, Director of the Unified Registry of Brazil's Ministry of Social Development and Fight against Hunger, and Margaret Grosh, Practice Manager for Latin American and the Caribbean Social Protection and Labor at the World Bank, to discuss how to manage the registration system, how to promote the quality of information of the Unified Registry and how to provide the data for various social programs, ensuring the confidentiality of information.

The Brazilian Unified Registry (Cadastro Único in Portuguese) is the tool that enabled the Government of Brazil to identify the most pressing needs of the poor segment of the population, and to deliver the programs and services required by this population. After the Bolsa Família Program, the Unified Registry was consolidated as the main tool for identifying Brazil´s low-income population. Today it plays a vital role in the functioning of country's social protection system.

This webinar is part of the Brazil Learning Initiative for a World without Poverty – a partnership between the World Bank, UNDP's International Policy Centre for Inclusive Growth (IPC-IG), the Institute of Applied Economic Research (IPEA), and the Ministry of Social Development and Fight against Hunger (MDS).
