JOI Brazil: Helping shape the Brazilian labor policy landscape

22 May 2024

2024 marks the third anniversary of the Jobs and Opportunities Initiative Brazil (JOI Brazil), an initiative launched by J-PAL Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC) in May 2021, with the generous support of Fundação Arymax, B3 Social, Fundação Tide Setubal, Potencia Ventures, the Inter-American Development Bank, and Insper. Over these three years, it has operated with the conviction that a quality job is a fundamental asset in people’s lives but also the understanding that there are challenges in promoting access to stable and dignified work opportunities for the entire Brazilian population.

JOI Brazil engages and strengthens the ecosystem of organizations working on productive inclusion, kickstarting strategic partnerships with governments and consolidating a diverse research portfolio. The dissemination of evidence, influence on public policy, and the use of knowledge by policymakers are our top priorities. This blog shares about what JOI Brazil has accomplished so far—and what we hope to accomplish in the coming years.
