IASPD 12 - What is Brazil’s “Cadastro Único” (Unified Registry) for social programs and how does it work?
WHAT IS BRAZIL’S “CADASTRO ÚNICO” (UNIFIED REGISTRY) SOCIAL PROGRAMS AND HOW DOES IT WORK?
The Brazilian Unified Registry was the main tool that enabled the Government of Brazil to identify the most pressing needs of the extremely poor segment of our population, and to deliver the programs and services required by this population. After the Bolsa Família Program, the Unified Registry was consolidated as the tool for identifying Brazil´s low-income population. Today it plays a vital role in the functioning of country´s Social Protection System.
Join us in a virtual discussion with Joana Mostafa, Director of Cadastro Único at the Ministry of Social Development and Fight Against Hunger and Margaret Grosh, Acting Practice Manager for Social Protection and Labor for the World Bank, who will explain what CadÚnico is all about, how data is collected, what stakeholders are involved in the process, etc. During the webinar alternatives for knowledge exchange in the implementation of unified registries for beneficiaries will also be discussed. Please note that this Seminar will be conducted in Spanish.
