Evidence-based Policy With Lots of Human Touch

Some of Brazil’s greatest resources lie in its diversity, youth, and appetite for action. CIEDS, or the Center for Integrated Studies and Programs for Sustainable Development, has been channeling the country’s energy into sustainable social justice projects since 1998. Part social enterprise incubator, part community empowerment machine, CIEDS both creates and supports the knowledge, methodologies, and technologies to promote more strategic public policy and social investment. It does so with a precise yet human touch, allocating resources to projects that benefit the most needy regardless of size. CIEDS has become an institution that contributes immensely to improving public policy and ethics throughout Brazil, operating around the country from its Rio de Janeiro headquarters and several local offices. So far it has carried out nearly 500 projects impacting over half a million beneficiaries in...

Evidence-based Policy With Lots of Human Touch

Some of Brazil’s greatest resources lie in its diversity, youth, and appetite for action. CIEDS, or the Center for Integrated Studies and Programs for Sustainable Development, has been channeling the country’s energy into sustainable social justice projects since 1998. Part social enterprise incubator, part community empowerment machine, CIEDS both creates and supports the knowledge, methodologies, and technologies to promote more strategic public policy and social investment. It does so with a precise yet human touch, allocating resources to projects that benefit the most needy regardless of size. CIEDS has become an institution that contributes immensely to improving public policy and ethics throughout Brazil, operating around the country from its Rio de Janeiro headquarters and several local offices. So far it has carried out nearly 500 projects impacting over half a million beneficiaries in 2,500 communities across Brazil.

CIEDS’ innovative model links government authorities to citizens with the support of corporations and partner nonprofits. Day-to-day, the Center creates, organizes, and implements projects and technologies that relate to its four core areas of activity: Education and Citizenship, Inclusion and Welfare, Integrated Development, and Entrepreneurship. The organization lives out one of its most cherished values, cooperation, in its own work, seeking out partnerships of all types and with people from all walks of life. Over the course of its eighteen-year history, CIEDS has accumulated vast public policy and social investment data – and a fleet of committed private, public, and nonprofit partners to help it use this data to improve social investment practices and public policy.

CIEDS’ success is obviously the result of that cooperation, but CIEDS would not thrive if it did not inspire a great sense of respect among participants. The organization trusts that the people and projects it works with have a lot of talent to offer to communities. CIEDS has proven itself one of the most innovative and impactful organizations in Brazil and the world, and certainly one to watch for years to come.
