Combining growth and social inclusion: The contribution of regional policies

This chapter describes the different policies in place in Brazil that have an implicit or explicit impact on the territories. The first section describes the analytical framework of this review. The second section describes two policies with direct territorial impact: the National Policy for Regional Development and the Territories of Citizenship. The third section describes the growth acceleration plans (PAC 1 and 2). The fourth section aims to identify potential synergies between regional development policy and sectoral policies, such as social policies and industrial and innovation policies. It analyses three examples: the Bolsa Família Programme, the strategy for delivering health care services in lagging regions, and innovation and competitiveness policies.
