Bioeconomy Ecosystem Hubs: Enhancing bioeconomy businesses in the Amazon
The objective of the project is the creation of Bioeconomy Ecosystem Hubs in the Legal Amazon Region to strengthen and articulate the local bioeconomy businesses through supporting programs and training; creation of a network to connect local actors and stakeholders, so that they can strengthen local networks; and the creation of mechanisms so that this model can be adopted and/or replicated as public policy in the territory.

Economia do Comportamento para Melhores Políticas Públicas
Prazo de inscrição: 27 de Agosto, 2024Nos últimos anos, cada vez mais governos e formuladores de políticas têm percebido que, para serem verdadeiramente bem-sucedidas, as políticas públicas devem considerar a forma como os indivíduos se comportam e tomam decisões. Com essa premissa, este curso se propõe a ensinar os conceitos fundamentais da economia do comportamento e como estes diferem da visão do modelo econômico tradicional. O curso também introduz ferramentas que podem ajudar a promover a tomada de melhores decisões e apresenta casos reais de intervenções em que esses “empurrões” foram usados para aprimorar as políticas públicas em países da América Latina e de outras partes do mundo.

Options to Achieve Carbon Neutrality in Chile: An Assessment Under Uncertainty
Chile aims to reach carbon neutrality. Its Nationally Determined Contribution (NDC) commits the country to reach net-zero emissions of greenhouse gases by 2050 and sets targets for emissions to be reduced progressively over time. To comply with the goals of the NDC, line ministries have considered a set of sectoral transformations, such as closing coal-fired power plants, promoting electric mobility, and increasing forest captures which, taken together, could bring emissions down to zero. This study evaluates how these sectoral transformations would fare under a wide range of economic, environmental, and technological uncertainties. It identifies the vulnerabilities of the strategy, that is, under what conditions sectoral transformations are insufficient to achieve net-zero emissions. It then quantifies options for making sectoral plans to deliver the NDC more robust, that is to reduce the likelihood of not achieving carbon neutrality. Additional measures discussed include speeding up retirement of coal-fired power plants, promotion of telework and non-motorized transport, reduction of beef consumption, expansion of thermal retrofitting of houses, increased afforestation, sustainable forest management, and expansion of protected areas. These measures are based on ideas proposed by sectoral experts during a participatory process. Finally, a macroeconomic evaluation finds that enhancing the set of measures put forward to comply with the NDC would result in a net gain of 0.8% of gross domestic product (GDP) by 2050, on the top of 4.4% GDP gain that the current NDC plans would bring.

Economía del comportamiento para mejores políticas públicas
Cierre de matriculaciones: 26 de marzo 2024En los últimos años, cada vez más gobiernos y policy makers se dan cuenta que, para que las políticas públicas sean verdaderamente exitosas, deben tener en cuenta la forma en que los individuos se comportan y toman decisiones.   Por esta razón, las lecciones de la economía del comportamiento se aplican cada vez más al diseño de políticas públicas para que se adapten al comportamiento y a la toma de decisiones de los ciudadanos.  Con esta premisa, en este curso se propone enseñar los conceptos fundamentales de la economía del comportamiento y cómo difieren de la visión del modelo económico estándar. Asimismo, introduce herramientas que pueden ayudar a promover la toma de mejores decisiones, y presenta casos reales de intervenciones que han utilizado estos empujoncitos para mejorar las políticas públicas en países de América Latina y otras partes del mundo.

Behavioral Economics for Better Public Policies
Enrolment deadline: March, 26th 2024In recent years, an increasing number of governments and policymakers have come to realize that, in order for public policies to be truly successful, they must consider how individuals behave and make decisions. Based on this idea, this course aims to teach you key concepts of behavioral economics and how they differ from the notions of the standard economic model. The course also introduces tools that can help promote a better decision making and reviews cases from real interventions in which these nudges were used to improve public policies in Latin American countries, and other parts of the world. This course was developed by the IDB’s Research Department and the Knowledge, Innovation and Communications Sector, under the guidance of the IDB’s Behavioral Economics Group.

The IDB Group supports the region through nature-based in Central America to address development challenges which are exacerbated by climate change. With a portfolio of about US $ 200 million, the Bank supports the design and implementation of REDD strategies focused on protection and management sustainable forest, value chain support and climate finance resource mobilization. These programs support countries to meet not only commitments under their NDCs, but also with national development priorities.

Payment for Ecosystem Services in Costa Rica: Evaluation of a Country-wide Program
Several countries have implemented payment-for-ecosystem-services (PES) programs, buoyed by the promise of these programs as a win-win strategy that would allow both the conservation of natural resources, and the reduction of poverty for rural households and communities. Our study evaluates the effect on deforestation of Costa Rica's PES program, one of the oldest country-wide programs in the world. Costa Rica approved the 1996 Forest Law (Law No. 7575), creating a PES program that compensates landowners for forest conservation. We estimate these effects using an event study design with staggered entry into treatment. Our results show a statistically significant effect for the first year with a decrease in deforestation of 0.21 ha, but not for the following years. Given that the baseline level of deforestation in our sample is low, the magnitude of the effect is large. When compared to the pre-2016 average level of within farm deforestation, our estimated effect would imply a 100% reduction in deforestation for the first year after enrollment. Given the program pays the participants for a 5-year period, and that the effect is significant only during the first year, it may be beneficial for the program to reduce its length and implement required simplified annual contract renewals or other behavioral interventions to reduce noncompliance in subsequent years.

Amazonian Forest: The Products of Agroecological Systems: Considerations about the Natural Forest and Economic Exploitation for its Conservation and How to Develop Sustainable Agroforestry Systems that Induce the Reduction of Deforestation
This study demonstrates that the economic activity of the Amazon's natural forest has great potential yet to be developed when considering Non-Timber Forest Products (NTFPs) and those coming from agro-ecosystems (SAFs). Preliminary financial analyzes, in systems that are still incipient, point to a great potential for profitability of these alternative systems compared to traditional activities such as soybean and livestock farming, with the advantage of being conducted without degradation and deforestation, allowing the continuation with the support of the Amazonian ecological system. More research is needed to scale successful cases and more “dialogue” between the models of modern agriculture and the traditional knowledge to reach an integrated natural forest management system.
