Fiscal Policy and Climate Change: Recent Experiences of Finance Ministries in Latin America and the Caribbean
This publication presents recent experiences of finance ministries in the Latin American and Caribbean region in three crucial areas of intervention where climate change issues and the responsibilities of these ministries merge. In addition, it presents key elements for designing fiscal policies that contribute to sustainable growth. The three areas are: 1) Management of economic, fiscal, and financial risks associated with extreme weather events and climate change; 2) Challenges of the transition to low-carbon economies; and 3) Reorientation of public finances so they contribute to national objectives of resilience and decarbonization. Despite the risks and challenges involved in transitioning to green economies, the publication provides evidence indicating that both economic and employment opportunities can be achieved with efficient planning and implementation.

Gigantes globales y estrellas locales: cómo los cambios en la propiedad de las marcas influyen en la competencia

Caribbean Quarterly Bulletin: Volume 9: Issue 1, April 2020
This special edition of the Caribbean Quarterly Bulletin focuses on the evolving economic and human consequences of the ongoing COVID-19 outbreak for countries in the Caribbean region. Our team of economists based in countries across the region has been working to assess the situation and advise senior management of the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) and stakeholders from member countries about the potential implications of the shock and policy responses best suited to mitigate its effects. First and foremost, the focus is on reducing the human impact of the crisis. Lives are at stake, but that said, so are livelihoods. As a result, it is important to try to understand the economic forces at work in order to think through appropriate policy responses.
