and from South to South to South to North

November 16, 2010


in relation to the South to South learning taking place between Brazil and African countries with respect to social policy and the specific Bolsa Familia programme, it also has to be noted that it’s not only other developing countries that learn from and emulate the conditional cash transfer schemes in Latin America. It has actually also proven a great example of South to North learning with New York City modelling its Opportunity NYC programme on Mexico’s Oportunidades (or Brazil’s Bolsa Familia, as Vice Minister Paes de Sousa claimed yesterday). See the programme’s website for more information.
