LAMPREIA, Luiz Felipe. Relatório brasileiro sobre desenvolvimento social. Estud. av. [online]. 1995, vol.9, n.24, pp.9-74. ISSN 1806-9592.

The Brazilian National report was elaborated as part of the process of preparations for the Brazilian participation in the World Summit for Social Development. It endevors to delineate a picture of Brazil in relation to the three central themes of the event, namely the relief and reduction of poverty, the expansion of productive employment, and social integration. The first part, aiming to identify the peculiarities of the social chalenges Brazil is faced with, consists of as comprehensive survey of the more relevant general data. The second part, of a conceptual character, inquires into the relationship between social development and justice for all, particularly in the area where economic/social development and economic/social policy diverge. The Report then goes on to the part more directly linked to the central theme of othe Summit. The chapter on poverty endevors to describe some of the main characteristics of this phenomenon in Brazil. Under "Employment and Labor Market", topics such as the low rate of usable unemployment in the Brazilian market place and its relation to the poor quality of available jobs are examined. Finally "Social Integration and social Policy" stressesd the necessity for new structures for social solidarity, which would imply the reorganization of the logistics of financing and its integration in a cohesive plan, together with new partnerships of the State with Society, and of the public with the private sector. By way of conclusion, the main directives of the Federal Government for 1995-1999 are drawn. It emphasizes the need to reach four fundamental conditions, namely the strengthning of democracy, the maintaining of economic stability, the recuperation of sustained growth, and the remodeling of the State.To achieve this, five priority targets in the social area are identified: agriculture, education, employment, health, and security. The Report ends with a brief outline of the structure of the Solidarity Community Program and calls attention to the fact that the program is not the sole social policiy of the Brazilian Government, but is rather the guideline for programs in all areas of government.
