Increased Access to Connectivity Services to the Majority in Poor Communities th
The objective of the proposed Technical Cooperation is to scale an innovative, inclusive and sustainable social enterprise model, the Center for Digital Inclusion, for making ICT services accessible and affordable for the Majority population in the Northeast region of Brazil. This will be accomplished through the development of an online platform which will enable CDI to better manage its growing network of 2,865 digital inclusion centers (803 CDI Community Centers and 2,062 CDI LAN Houses) through: a. Creating a better flow of information within the organization allowing for strategic decision making and streamlined management; b. Better control of CDI centers; c. Better understanding the possible correlation and trade-offs between financial sustainability and social impact; d. Cost reduction on the management of regional offices, and therefore ability to scale up faster. The broader objective of the proposed Technical Cooperation is to demonstrate the potential of market-based strategies to improve the lives of those who have been left behind.

Climate Change, Migration and the Urban Housing and Labor Markets
Between 1991 and 2010, millions of Brazilians migrated from rural to urban areas, many of them because of the effect of increasing drought brought on by climate change. This migration has had effects not only on wages and employment, but also on the closely-related urban housing market. We decided to examine the phenomena in a

Population and Housing Censuses Indicators of Latin America and the Caribbean
The Population and Housing Censuses database contains the censuses harmonized in such a way as to provide comparable census information over time and across countries. The variables in these databases are constructed under a common approach and structure, with standardized names, definitions, and disaggregations, and stored in a single file for each country. Currently, the harmonization of Population and Housing Censuses includes databases for 22 countries. The indicators are categorized into seven themes: demographics, education, labor market, housing, income, migration, and diversity. When possible, we add multiple disaggregations for indicators. The available disaggregations are ethnicity, gender, age, education level, and area of geographic residence. The management and harmonization of this database are provided by the Social Sector (SCL) of the Vice Presidency of Knowledge and Sectors to strengthen the analytical content of projects and studies.
