The Brazil IDS Initiative provides focus in a geography at the leading edge of development thinking and practice due to accelerating environmental, economic, political and social change. It recognises that tackling challenges such as climate change, poverty and injustice requires knowledge sharing, mutual learning and collaboration inclusive of diverse perspectives within Brazil and globally.

The Brazil IDS Initiative creates space where researchers from within and outside of Brazil can share, learn and work with global researchers, governments, civil society and the private sector. By better understanding fast emerging perspectives, the Brazil IDS Initiative aims to strengthen development thinking and practice, moving beyond OECD country perspectives on Brazil to include multiple, diverse voices that can inform policy decision making and the generation of actionable solutions. It is part of an evolving global network of IDS International Initiatives that includes China, Europe, Ghana and Pakistan with emerging opportunities for global learning through shared experiences.

The Initiative’s research spans a broad range of themes including: development cooperation; social policy, health systems and inequalities; democracy, civil society and governance; food systems, agriculture and rural development; and inclusive business and value chains. This sub-community is structured against these themes, and collates publications authored by or co-authored with Brazilian academics.
