Abstract:

Brazil is the largest economy in South America and the 10th largest in the world, with GDP of over USD1.6 trillion. It is one of the most biologically diverse countries, hosting the largest tropical forest and the largest river basin in the world, as well as an extremely diverse population and culture. The country has one of the highest levels of income inequality: while the poorest 20% of the Brazilian population is responsible for only 2.8% of the GNP, the richest 20% accounts for 61.1%. Moreover, inequality is perceived in relation to distribution of land, assets and social services (SustainAbility 2006).
