Cost Simulation Tool for Long-Term Care Systems
The cost simulation tool for long-term care systems provides a way to quickly estimate how much it would cost governments in Latin America and the Caribbean to implement this type of system. It can also be used to compare different service packages and make projections. The dataset contains data on population, levels of care dependence, and other macroeconomic variables that are processed by formulas to allow users to quickly estimate how much it would cost a government to implement a long-term care system in 2020. Users can estimate the cost of up to two long-term care service packages and project costs for 2025 and 2030.

Medidas alternativas al proceso penal y a la privación de libertad en la justicia penal juvenil: el caso Argentino
Este artículo analiza el uso de recursos interdisciplinarios y la aplicación de medidas alternativas al proceso penal y a la privación de libertad en la justicia penal juvenil en seis jurisdicciones argentinas. Se desarrolla un análisis cuali-cuantitativo a partir de documentos institucionales y de entrevistas semiestructuradas con agentes del sistema. El estudio encuentra que, a pesar de que existe cierto consenso sobre los beneficios de desjudicializar la conflictividad sociopenal adolescente, el uso de medidas alternativas es generalmente bajo. La intervención interdisciplinaria en el trata-miento del delito adolescente también es un desafío. La falta de formación específica en enfoques restaurativos de los operadores del sistema penal juvenil, la persistencia de rasgos inquisitivos en el abordaje penal, las debilidades en la gestión y en la disponibilidad de información sistematizada y la ausencia de políticas, previsiones legales y protocolos efectivos son las condiciones más usuales que limitan la utilización de medidas alternativas. A pesar de estos obstáculos, el análisis destaca algunas buenas prácticas y experiencias en la implementación de medidas alternativas al proceso penal y propone una serie de recomendaciones para promover su fortalecimiento y expansión.

Ecological Design: Strategies for the Vulnerable City: Adapting Precarious Areas in Latin America and the Caribbean to Climate Change
According to the United Nations, approximately three out of every five cities in the world with at least 500,000 inhabitants are at high risk of a natural disaster. If no better work is done on mitigating and adapting cities, in the future they will be more populated, hotter, and less biodiverse. The environmental and climate crisis accentuates inequality, given that the most socially and economically vulnerable groups are more exposed to natural risks and generally have less access to infrastructure and ecosystem services. In Latin America and the Caribbean, the most vulnerable populations often reside in informal, precarious or popular settlements. In recent years, important advances have been made in rethinking these settlements, developing intervention strategies to improve the quality of life, safety and opportunities for their inhabitants. Today it is essential to effectively incorporate climate criteria into urban interventions. Ecological Design measures the impacts of the climate crisis in the most vulnerable areas of our cities - the informal city - while reflecting on how to protect those who are most strongly affected by the consequences of climate change. In addition, it provides new lenses to analyze risk and design nature-based solutions in precarious, informal, popular, vulnerable urban settlements, to make the informal city a more resilient city in the face of the climatic pressures that will come in the coming decades.
