Brazil’s Lessons in Rural Development / by Mark Langevin

The Washington Office on Latin America (WOLA) and researchers Joseph Bateman and Viviane Brochardt, with contributions from Silvio Porto have published a brief analytical guide to Brazil's efforts to reduce rural poverty during the past decade.  Also, there is a special section on water and projects to expand potable water access to increasing numbers of rural residents.  The authors add great value to their policy study by placing it within a Latin American comparative perspective, providing sensible recommendations for policymakers and non-governmentals working with family farmers and rural residents throughout the Latin American and Caribbean region.
