Beyond these levers, the Task force studied 85 recommendations made by the G7 countries, and talked to national and international experts in order to make them more relevant to the Brazilian reality.
The consolidation of this work created 15 recommendations, with objectives and priorities for the field. Their implementation will help to realize the goal of increasing the amount invested in social finance from the current 13B BRL to 50B BRL by 2020. Moving forward, the challenge of the Task force is the implementation of these recommendations.
