1 - The emergence of local contracts for the social development in Portugal;

2 - Local Contracts for Social Development and Europe 2020;

Overall Objective

The purpose of Local Contracts for Social Development is to promote the social inclusion of citizens, in a multi-response and integrated way, through a partnership workflow, in order to fight social exclusion and persistent poverty in depressed areas.

Local Contracts for Social Development focus on the concentration of resources in four areas of intervention: 

Employment, training and qualification;

Parental and family intervention;

Community and institutions empowerment ;

Information and accessibility.


In Portugal 

Employment Goal:

The national target on the employment rate in 2020 for the population between 20 and 64 is 75%.

Goal of Poverty Reduction:

The national goal is a reduction of at least 200 thousand people in poverty by 2020. This reduction should be phased in this period, due to budget constraints and consequent effort to contain that Portugal will be the subject until 2013, looking ahead to a more significant decrease from 2013.

Involvement of the local community from partnerships with local media and effective partnership working;

Awareness of the need for social innovation to increase efficiency and effectiveness of support provided by private institutions of social solidarity.

Conclusion :

That according to the Europe 2020 strategy, which calls for inclusive growth, we believe that the implementation of the Local Contract for Social Development program, in Portugal, may contribute to increasing the rate of employment and poverty reduction, recognizing that the proximity of the problems of local entities, including the municipalities, is in most situations, an added value to find a local answer and, therefore, more appropriate responses.
