The Role of Local Governments in Job Creation
This two-day workshop will present a menu of employment promotion policies that may be implemented by local governments. The workshop's objectives are: (i) to promote alliances among both, governmental and private stakeholders involved in the process of job-creation in the five main Colombian municipalities ; (ii) to gather lessons learned from international and national experiences of local governments who proactively have sought to promote employment; and (iii) to provide analytical and operational feedback on the on-going process of development of job-creation strategies of those municipalities; and (vi) to position the Bank as a developmental partner of Colombian local governments with regards to employment promotion.

Taxation when Markets are not Competitive: Evidence from a Loan Tax
We study the interaction of market structure and tax-and-subsidy strategies utilizing pass-through estimates from the unexpected introduction of a loan tax in Ecuador, a quantitative model, and a comprehensive commercial-loan dataset. Our model generalizes bank competition theories, including Bertrand-Nash competition, credit rationing, and joint-maximization. While we find the loan tax is distortionary, neglecting the possibility of non-competitive lending inflates estimated tax deadweight loss by 80% because non-competitive banks internalize some of the burden. Conversely, subsidies are less effective in non-competitive settings. If competition were stronger, tax revenue would be 10% lower. The findings suggest that policymakers should consider market structure in tax-and-subsidy strategies.

The Promises of Digital Bank Accounts for Low-income Individuals
The push for adopting digital modes of payment rests on three promises: increased efficiency of transactions, increased financial inclusion, and improvements in the financial well-being of low-income individuals. We experimentally test the extent to which these promises are fulfilled. We exploit the random assignment into an intervention to encourage direct deposits of recurrent government benefits into digital bank accounts in Colombia. Switching from cash to direct deposits reduces disbursement errors and increases access to benefits among eligible beneficiaries. It also increases the ownership of bank accounts, the demand for formal loans, and loan take-up among individuals without a financial history. However, we do not find evidence of improvements in financial well-being across any of our metrics.

Dependencia fiscal de los recursos naturales a nivel subnacional en la Región Andina: desafíos y reformas
Uno de los mayores desafíos que enfrenta la humanidad es hacer que el planeta sea habitable para las próximas generaciones. Para ello, se requiere el rápido paso hacia economías descarbonizadas y que minimicen el uso de los recursos naturales no renovables. Este paso es muy costoso, ya que requiere adaptar el consumo y la producción a una nueva fuente energética, generando múltiples impactos, entre los que se destacan los impactos redistributivos en distintas dimensiones (entre sectores sociales, regiones y generaciones). En los países andinos, estos desafíos adquieren complejidades especiales, relacionados con su particular estructura productiva, económica y social. Por un lado, es necesario considerar el impacto que tendría el necesario proceso de descarbonización de las economías sobre los sectores extractivos asociados al petróleo, el gas y el carbón mineral. Por otro lado, las economías andinas también son productoras de varios de los minerales usados en tecnologías de generación de energía más limpias o verdes. De hecho, los gobiernos centrales y subnacionales son dependientes de la renta generada tanto por el sector extractivo (minería e hidrocarburos). Teniendo en cuenta que la descarbonización y la transición energética introducirán costos socioeconómicos-fiscales relevantes y considerando la alta desigualdad preexistente en los países andinos, debe prestarse particular atención a los impactos distributivos, tanto personales como regionales. El presente trabajo aborda los desafíos actuales que enfrentan los gobiernos locales en cuanto a los ingresos por renta extractiva, en particular los sistemas de regalía. También se dan recomendaciones de política para enfrentar el fenómeno de activos varados derivado de la pérdida de la renta petrolera y cómo mejorar los sistemas de regalías para la industria extractiva.

MICI Reflections: Access to Remedy and Dispute Resolution: Contributions to the Conversation Based on MICI's Experience
The notion of remedy has gained importance and become a central issue on the international development agenda, despite accountability mechanisms and financial institutions have been subject to continued criticism in terms of their ability to provide effective remedy for communities claiming to be affected by development projects. This note aims to explore the role of alternative dispute resolution in access to remedy, and to specifically examine the contributions that MICIs Consultation Phase has made in providing solutions to communities that believe they have been adversely affected by IDB Group-financed development projects between 2017 and 2022.

Latin America and the Caribbean Standardized Public Debt Database: Data as of June 2023
This database compiles current standardized statistics on sovereign debt issuances for the Latin American and Caribbean (LAC) region and contains biannual data starting in 2006 through June 2023. Sovereign debt data is classified by legislation, creditor, currency, and maturity, among other areas, for 26 LAC countries. The availability of valid, comparable, and standardized public debt data is essential for the implementation of sound policies. As such, at the core of the LAC Debt Group initiative is the development of a standardized sovereign debt database to help debt managers, policymakers, and other actors of financial markets analyze the evolution and composition of public debt in the region and conduct cross-country comparisons. LAC public debt offices provided the data in response to a questionnaire specifically designed to allow comparability. The questionnaire, whose response is non-compulsory, is intended to compile current standardized statistics for objective and homogeneous definitions of public debt.
