Te has preguntado ¿cómo puedes marcar la diferencia contribuyendo a reducir la pobreza, la desigualdad y la brecha de género a través de los impuestos que pagas?

En el BID estamos en la constante búsqueda de ideas y soluciones para mejorar vidas en América Latina y el Caribe. Es por ello que hemos organizado un Ideatón, una metodología de colaboración abierta que surge de la necesidad de dar respuestas innovadoras a la situación actual que enfrenta la región.

En ese contexto, la División de Gestión Fiscal y Municipal y el Departamento de Conocimiento y Aprendizaje están convocando a un Ideatón en el marco de la XVI Reunión Anual del Grupo BID con la Sociedad Civil, para mejorar políticas fiscales que permitan reducir la pobreza, la desigualdad, y la brecha de género.

Después de una década de alto crecimiento económico y de importantes progresos sociales, América Latina y el Caribe ha entrado en una etapa de oportunidades económicas limitadas, las cuales constituyen un desafío a los avances alcanzados en materia económica y social.

Convencidos de que las políticas fiscales pueden contribuir a resolver estos desafíos, y que las soluciones a estos problemas deben estar adaptados a cada contexto de la región, el BID plantea este Ideatón con la sociedad civil para identificar ejemplos reales que hayan sido implementados en tu país u otros países y evaluar su replicabilidad en la región.
