Unraveling the Network of the Extractive Industries
This paper analyzes extractive industries in Colombia and their connections to other economic activities in the country. We use detailed social security data on all formal employees to create an industry-relatedness measure using labor flows between industries. Drawing on the vast network analysis literature, we exploit centrality measures to reveal the importance of the extractive sector among Colombian industries. Our results show that extractive industries are well connected within the Colombian industrial network, and that they are central overall and within their clusters. We also find that extractive industries have stronger linkages with manufacturing and agriculture than with other sectors. Finally, a higher relatedness to extractive activities is correlated with lower levels of employment, specially of female workers.

La industria libre de carbono está más cerca de lo que creemos
El acero, el cemento, los productos químicos, el vidrio o los ladrillos forman la realidad física de nuestra civilización. Los utilizamos para construir casas, escuelas, hospitales, oficinas, carreteras e incluso para crear estructuras que nos ayuden a evitar o reducir el impacto de los desastres naturales. Pero ¿podemos seguir confiando en estos materiales cuando su producción provoca el 34% de las emisiones mundiales de CO2? La respuesta es sí. Según un reciente informe del IDDRI y el BID, es posible transformar la industria.

The Role of Agents and the Nature of Limitations in the Performance of Development Projects
Development practitioners aspire to improve lives, but achieving results is challenging. What prevents operations from achieving their objectives? Answering this question is critical to promote success. This Discussion Paper proposes to analyze operations first to identify if they faced limitations to effectiveness, then to identify which key stakeholders faced those limitations, and finally, whether such limitations were exogenous. Such an approach may strengthen accountability and learning. An analysis of 62 project completion reports evaluated in 2022 by the Inter-American Development Bank shows that success was contingent upon critical agents performance and the influence of exogenous factors. Four in 10 operations that failed had agents other than the executing agency face challenges. The same share of operations had agents face limitations derived from the project environment or third-party inputs beyond their control. Despite limitations, the proposed framework may provide insights for future work that promotes effectiveness.
