This webinar is part of a series of webinars on poverty reduction programs to support knowledge exchange between Brazil and other countries. Please contact webinar@wwp.org.br for additional information about this webinar.

One of the main reasons for establishing an intersectoral strategy for overcoming extreme poverty is the ability to encourage and support partners’ activities and draw closer to effective universality in the services provided, taking advantage of synergies they could not have leveraged had they been acting alone. Joint and optimised work increases the efficiency, efficacy and the effectiveness of all partners.

In this webinar the presenters Rodrigo Lofrano (English version), Coordinator of the Bolsa Família Program’s Conditionalities, of the Ministry of Social Development and Fight against Hunger (MDS/Brazil), and Juliana Macedo (Spanish version), General Coordinator of the Intersectoral Articulation, of MDS/Brazil, and the commentator Kathy Lindert, Global Lead Economist for Social Protection and Labor at the World Bank, will explain how tools can be useful for intersectoral coordination in conditional cash transfer programs, such as the Bolsa Família Program.
