Social Progress Networks
Collaboration to drive progress
Business has an important role to play in driving true growth, but it cannot, and should not, do it alone.
Social Progress at the regional level
On August 25th 2014, a new Social Progress Index for the Brazilian Amazon was released. The report, which measured the well-being of 24 million people, found that social progress in the resource and nature rich region was considerably lower than in the rest of Brazil. A lack of opportunity was found to be the most pressing problem Amazon residents faced. The report will be used to focus discussion around the social and environmental issues facing the region and may be used as a compass to guide management and public policies for the Amazon. The work was led by a research institute, Imazon, and supported by Deloitte Brazil through its leadership role in the Brazilian Partner Network, #ProgressoSocialBrazil.

"Studies like this one are essential for leaders across public, private, and civil sectors to gain a deep understanding of the challenges for regions, like the Brazilian Amazon"
