Towards a Diagnosis of International Cooperation on Social Protection in the Region

Cases of Brazil, Chile, Colombia and Mexico

The aim of this document is to provide a first approach to a diagnosis of international cooperation on social policy in specific reference to the social protection programs and policies being implemented by some of the region’s social development authorities. This exercise will facilitate an analysis of regional trends and lessons learned as well as a closer appreciation of the major challenges facing government institutions in terms of knowledge and experience transfer, all of particular relevance in the promotion of institutional strengthening and enhancing social protection programs aimed at the poor and vulnerable.
