The Brazilian Development Model for Africa: Evidence and Lessons
DFID is seeking a service provider or group of organisations to carry out a programme of research on the Brazilian model of development. The aim is to better understand the factors underpinning its success and to identify lessons for Africa against four thematic areas (agriculture, institutions, social programmes, and economic spheres). The overall objective of the research programme is to address the gap in knowledge on transferability of Brazil’s economic development, in an innovative manner. It is envisaged that the work will take place in two phases over up to three years. The first year (phase 1) will require the delivery of 15 research papers and a detailed work plan for phase 2. Under both phases the research should have a strong practical focus on what has and has not worked and where, why and how, and on the transferability of those results for DFID’s African focus countries. The research is expected to be of international level quality (e.g. through publication in leading academic journals) and have impact (e.g. through influencing African policy debates on transferring relevant lessons from Brazil. This project is the first of three initiatives by DFID to research lessons for Low Income Countries (LICs) from successful emerging powers
