The Program for Industrial Districts in Brazil
AbstractThe Multilateral Investment Fund (MIF) supports activities that promote the creation and strengthening of support services that will spur development of SMEs and stimulate demand for the use of such services. The Program for the Development of Industrial Districts in Brazil is a good example of how MIF works with local institutions to strengthen different dimensions of SME development. The case study that follows, prepared based on the Industrial Districts Program impact evaluation conducted four years after program completion, aims to contribute to better design, execution, evaluation, and impact of future MIF programs. It is presented as an educational tool for program officers at MIF and the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB), potential partnering institutions, and other stakeholders.
