Risk Management in Development Projects
Project teams usually spend a large portion of their time solving problems instead of preventing them. Project risk management seeks to preemptively manage positive and negative events that may affect a project so as to improve its chance of success. What will you be able to do by the end of the course? - Identify risks in scenarios of uncertainty; - Determine who can help you; understand how to manage risks in settings with limited resources; - Develop risk response strategies; monitor and update risks throughout the life of the project.

Domestic Violence Reporting during the COVID-19 Pandemic: Evidence from Latin America
This article examines changes in the frequency and characteristics of domestic violence reports after the start of the pandemic and the imposition of mobility restrictions in six Latin American countries. The study uses three types of data sources: calls to domestic violence hotlines (for the City of Buenos Aires in Argentina, Colombia, and Peru); calls to emergency lines (for Ecuador, Lima in Peru, and Costa Rica); and police/legal complaints (for Colombia, Ecuador, and Uruguay). Data through June 2020 shows that the pandemic's impact on domestic violence reports varied significantly across countries, periods, types of violence, and reporting channels. Calls to domestic violence hotlines soared, but calls to emergency lines and police complaints fell (especially in the first weeks of the pandemic). Significantly distinct patterns are observed between reports of psychological and physical violence, and non-cohabitant and cohabitant violence. These patterns are consistent with the pandemic changing the relative incidence of different types of violence and altering the perceived costs of reporting them through alternative channels. Increases in calls to domestic violence hotlines suggest that this channel was best suited to respond to victims' needs during the pandemic. In turn, the drop in legal complaints and calls to comprehensive emergency lines are consistent with an increase in the perceived (relative) cost of using these channels. The findings reveal how the pandemic altered domestic violence victims' demand for institutional help and highlight the relevance of domestic violence hotlines as an accessible and valuable service.

Research Insights: Risk Transfer for Multilateral Development Banks: Obstacles and Potential
La transferencia de riesgo se refiere a un conjunto de técnicas que permiten a los Bancos Multilaterales de Desarrollo (BMDs) transferir riesgos de su balance, liberando espacio para más préstamos a los países en vías de desarrollo a bajas tasas de interés. Existe el potencial para un uso más amplio de la transferencia de riesgo, que complementa otros aumentos de capital de los BMDs de los accionistas. Sin embargo, hay diversos obstáculos que limitan las posibilidades de transferencia de riesgos. Por esto, proporcionamos recomendaciones específicas a los responsables internacionales de las políticas para desbloquear el potencial de estas técnicas.

Risk Transfer for Multilateral Development Banks: Obstacles and Potential
Long-term development finance provided by Multilateral Development Banks (MDBs) is key to advancing the United Nations 2015 Sustainable Development Goals. However, MDBs are constrained in their lending by the availability of capital. This paper argues that Risk Transfer, as a complement to equity injections, could permit higher MDB lending by attracting a broader class of investors. We describe selected examples of actual Risk Transfer transactions and provide estimates of the potential expansion in lending these techniques could yield. But we also identify obstacles that limit investors willingness and ability to participate in these transactions. Therefore, we recommend an agenda for international policymakers to open the way for the wider use of Risk Transfer. Still, we recognize this will be a gradual process which cannot substitute for MDB expansion through additional ordinary capital resources.
