Brazil - Rural Poverty Reduction Project - Minas Gerais (英语)

Ratings for the Rural Poverty Reduction Project - Minas Gerais for Brazil were as follows: outcomes were satisfactory, risk to development outcome was low, Bank performance was satisfactory, and borrower performance was also satisfactory. Some lessons learned included: the Project's demand-drivenness improves local governance by giving poor rural communities a unique set of experiences involving collective action, priority-setting, decision-making, and investment financial management, operation and maintenance. Social capital under this and similar projects is both a benefit in its own right and an element in the success of participatory rural poverty reduction. By working with existing CMDRSs (Conselho Municipal de Desenvolvimento Rural Sustentavel - Sustainable Rural Development Municipal Council) in the project area and successfully increasing their representation among potential project beneficiaries, both the quality and targeting of public resources (project and non-project) improved, while leveraging complementary funding and deepening the investment stock needed for faster rural poverty reduction. Experience in Minas Gerais and elsewhere shows unequivocally that demand-driven mechanisms not only enable women to access the benefits of community investments, but provide opportunities for women through the community associations. The project demonstrated, albeit on a small scale, that participatory, demand-driven mechanisms are cultural practices of these groups and that they can manage the subproject participatory mechanisms, effectively.
