Policy coherence in the implementation of the 2030 agenda for the sustainable development : the brazilian school feeding programme case study

Mariana Werlang Girardi


Objective: To analyze the coherence between the 2030 Agenda and the legal framework of the Brazilian National School Feeding Programme (PNAE) at the federal level. Methodology: This applied research adopted qualitative, descriptive and documental approaches and used, as conceptual base, The Policy Coherence for Sustainable Development (PCSD) Framework, proposed by OECD (2016). The author developed a procedure to quantify the coherence between the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the PNAE. Conclusions: In the legal framework, 162 coherence links were identified in 37 targets (21.8%) of 13 SDGs (76.4%). SDGs that presented the greatest coherence, according to the criteria used and in descending order were: SDG 2, SDG 4, SDG 3, SDG 1, SDG 10, SDG 16, SDG 12, SDG 15 and SDG 17. SDG 5 (gender equality) presented the weakest intensity of coherence. In-depth analysis of SDG 1 (no poverty) showed that the coherence intensity of the PNAE’s legal framework with this Goal derives, to a great extent, from its integration with the Food Acquisition Programme (PAA). A possible way to increase the coherence intensity between SDG 1 and the PNAE’s legal framework would be to incorporate into this programme, aspects exclusively present in the design of the PAA. Regarding the SDG 2 (zero hunger), a way to increase the coherence intensity between this Goal and the PNAE’s legal framework would be to increment the minimum purchase value of smallholder farming beyond thirty percent.
