World Without Poverty: Knowledge sharing platform

World Without Poverty: Knowledge sharing platform

UN and Government of Brazil Launch World Without Poverty Knowledge Initiative.

WWP will capture Brazil's own experience with social protection systems. The platform is thus a way to share with other countries the main aspects of the design, management and monitoring of these programs and other actions. It will also allow Brazil to improve its programs from the successful experiences of other countries' knowledge.

WWP is sponsored by Brazil's Ministry of Social Development and Fight against Hunger (MDS), the Brazilian Institute for Applied Economic Research (IPEA), UNDP's International Policy Center for Inclusive Growth (IPC-IG), and the World Bank.
