Intergovernmental Fiscal Cooperation and Subnational Revenue Autonomy
This paper focuses on two distinct but interrelated subjects. First, it discusses how cooperation among and within the different levels of government can help improve macro-fiscal management, as well as various aspects of intergovernmental fiscal relations. These include the delivery of subnational goods and services, the system of intergovernmental transfers, and the control of subnational indebtedness. Second, the paper highlights the benefits of, and obstacles to, subnational revenue autonomy and points to appropriate own-revenue sources for regional and local governments. It also discusses how intergovernmental cooperation can help subnational governments strengthen their revenue administration capacity. The paper was prepared as a result of the 2017 International Forum of the Decentralization and Subnational Fiscal Management Network of Latin America and the Caribbean, led by the Fiscal Management Division of the Inter-American Development Bank. It utilizes a number of country experiences from within and outside the region to illustrate successful approaches to the challenges of intergovernmental cooperation and subnational revenue mobilization.

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.

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.

Opportunities and Challenges for Agrifood Trade Between Central American Integration System and Caribbean Community Countries
This study responds to the proposal made by the Secretariat of the Central American Agricultural Council (SECAC) and the Secretariat for Central American Economic Integration (SIECA) on the need to promote spaces for integration in the area of agrifood trade between Central America and the Caribbean. It is a joint work between the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) and the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) in the search for possible trade solutions to the food security crisis, the need to generate greater employment opportunities, economic recovery and, in general, achieve better living conditions for the Central American and Caribbean population. The document is organized into six sections: introduction; an abbreviated analysis of agrifood trade trends at the global level and between the two subregions; market access conditions between the two regions; a section defining the coverage and methodology used for the research; identification of products with trade potential; the major limitations and challenges in taking advantage of these opportunities; and, finally, the conclusions and public policy recommendations to help overcome the challenges and contribute to the goal of greater and better food security.
