  • Agricultural development is widely recognized as crucial for poverty reduction. At the same time, agricultural expansion and ever more intensive practices are widely recognized for their contribution to ecosystem degradation. Less well recognized is that, in many cases, agriculture offers the potential to generate both poverty reduction and better environmental outcomes.

These informal settlements often occupy environmentally precarious areas such as steep hillsides and riverbanks, and usually lack key infrastructure, in particular sanitation and sewerage systems. This has resulted in increased rates of disease and mortality. Brazil has, however, made significant steps in addressing the problems which beset the favelas.

  • From the workshops that the IDB has had in the region, it seems that regardless of whether the objective of funds is expressed as poverty re- duction or alleviation, as long as there is a poverty problem, there is a role for a fund. Funds should be thought of as instruments to comple- ment other actions and programs of governments to reduce poverty. What social funds do in any particular country is going to depend on what will help the poor, what the government is doing, and what local conditions prevail. The funds themselves are small. The government does other things.

  • These banking successes should be celebrated. They pave the way for broadening access to finance for hundreds of millions, perhaps even billions, of low-income people who today lack ready access to formal financial services.

  • Conditional transfer programs have been shown to improve child health. PROGRESA, for instance, where nutritional supplements were linked to the participation in various educational programs, has had a significant impact on increasing child growth and in reducing the probability of child stunting.
