Brazil Design Report 2018-2020 – For Public Comment
In 2020, the Independent Reporting Mechanism (IRM) published the design report for Brazil’s fourth action plan. The report covers the action plan development process and the design of commitments.
The IRM researcher in Brazil, Fabro Steibel, summarizes the findings below:
“Brazil led a strong, collaborative co-creation process (developed with federal government, civil society, and some state and municipal government actors). The parties tackled topics such as freedom of speech, budget participation, and public accountability. The consultation process was extensive; however, the action plan lacks overall ambition. Going forward, it is recommended that the government more strategically include civil society organizations in the plan’s development process. It should also construct results-driven commitments that include clear strategies to achieve an expected goal.”
