Evaluation of Productive Opportunities and Public Investment Priorities in Least Developed Regions of Costa Rica
The objective of this TC is to design, from scratch, the Territorial Strategy for the Decarbonized Development of Costa Rica (TSDD), an input for the 2050 National Strategic Plan (PEN 2050), with special emphasis on the least developed rural areas of the country. This TC will allow to i) construct a spatial inventory of carbon emissions in Costa Rica to prioritize productive poles compatible with the 2018-2050 National Decarbonization Plan (DP), ii) determine the macro-level effects of proposed territorial strategy scenarios on economic and environmental variables using an Integrated Environmental Economic Model (IEEM), iii) determine the corresponding public-private investment required, and its sequencing, for the prioritized production poles to trigger deconcentrated economic growth at a territorial level, identifying investment in quality and resilient infrastructure to boost competitiveness and generate productive opportunities with social inclusion.

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.

In response to the pandemic, countries mobilized considerable resources to support families and firms. Since 2020, debt ratios have declined as economies recovered and fiscal deficits were shaved. Still,

Do Slum Upgrading Programs Impact School Attendance?
This paper analyzes how slum upgrading programs impact elementary school childrens attendance in Uruguay. We take advantage of the eligibility rule that deems slums eligible for a SUP program if they have 40 or more dwelling units. Using a fuzzy regression discontinuity estimator, we find that students exposed to SUPs are 17 percent less likely to be at the 90th percentile of the yearly count of school absences. That effect appears to be driven by how SUPs impact girls. These interventions have effects that last for more than five years after their implementation. We discuss some critical urban and education policy implications of our findings.

Estimating the Potential Economic Impact of Haiti’s 2021 Earthquake
This paper employs a simple methodology to estimate the potential economic damages of the 2021 earthquake in Haiti. The country registered a magnitude 7.2 earthquake off the South Coast on August 14, 2021, that resulted in 2,248 deaths, 12,763 injured and substantial damages to houses and other infrastructure. An additional 329 persons remain missing. We estimate economic damages using econometric techniques and a dataset on natural disasters across a wide range of countries and over an extended time period. Based on this analysis, damages for the 2021 earthquake in Haiti are estimated to reach US$1.6 billion (9.6 percent of GDP) for a scenario with an impact of 2,500 dead or missing. We also generate confidence intervals on these results. We hope these early estimates will provide a useful input to the ongoing Post-Disaster Risk Assessment (PDNA) and will assist the government and its international partners plan efforts to assist the country in terms of relief and reconstruction.

Achieving Sustainable Recovery: Criteria for Evaluating the Sustainability and Effectiveness of Covid-19 Recovery Investments in Latin America and the Caribbean
The Covid-19 pandemic has precipitated unprecedented health, social and economic crises across the countries of Latin America and the Caribbean. All countries in the region moved quickly to implement rescue policies to safeguard lives and livelihoods. The rescue phase continues along with the challenge of orchestrating the post-COVID-19 economic recovery: designing packages of investments and initiatives to stimulate employment, liquidity, reignite sustainable and inclusive economic growth and transition towards net-zero emission and climate-resilience economies to confront the worsening climate and ecological crisis. These policies must be sustainable in the short and long term and bring institutional, social, economic/financial, and environmental co-benefits. This working paper proposes criteria for evaluating the sustainability of recovery investments and initiatives, to serve as a checklist for stakeholders to use to ensure a recovery that builds an inclusive, sustainable and resilient future for all.
