Brasilia: International Policy Centre for Inclusive Growth (IPC-IG)
The objective of this paper is to propose a universal child grant for Brazil. We will discuss the rationality behind the proposal, how best to design it, its initial operational set-up,its costs, and some of its distributive aspects. The proposed allowance is based on the unification of the three child allowances that currently exist in the country.
