The EENA in Brazil was undertaken between November 2014 and May 2015 by Associação Brasileira de Organizações Não Governamentais (Abong).

Although important progress has been made, Brazil does not as yet have an enabling environment for civil society as many CSOs are faced with many obstacles. The legal framework protects civil society, but various issues such as the repeated attempts to criminalize CSOs, the decreasing interest of donors and the public, have created a difficult environment for CSOs in Brazil, especially for those working on equality and the defense of rights. A lack of knowledge within society of the work of CSOs, and a lack of trust – further instigated by a heavy criminalization campaign – complicates the work of CSOs.

The full EENA Brazil report is available in English and Portuguese
