Policy Brief: The Intersectoral Aspect of Brazilian Social Assistance – UNICEF Social Protection Series

May 24, 2024

As part of the Brazil-UNICEF Trilateral South-South Cooperation partnership, the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) and the Brazilian Cooperation Agency (ABC) have been collaborating on an evidence generation agenda, examining Brazilian good practices, public policies, legal frameworks, and programmes at both national and subnational levels.

To that end, they have produced a series of five policy briefs focused on Brazil’s Social Protection system to provide insights for government counterparts and stakeholders interested in Brazil’s systemic and intersectoral approach to social protection and the addressing of multidimensional poverty, particularly among families and children.

The fifth policy brief in the series presents some of the main elements of the intersectoral approach that permeate the Brazilian Unified Social Assistance System (SUAS), highlighting how multidimensional challenges call for complex and integrated solutions.
