Analysis of Agricultural and Fishery Policies and Agriculture-related Greenhouse Gases Emissions in Suriname
The agriculture and fisheries sectors account for 9 percent of Surinames GDP. Transition to a modern and innovative agri-food system is among the goals of Surinames government. Surinames agricultural policies include a combination of trade regulations, budget support, and direct participation in agricultural production by the state-owned companies. In 2016-2018, high inflation and currency depreciation impacted agricultural producers and consumers, while the budget funds for support to agriculture were substantially cut. In 2018, the annual value of support to individual producers in Suriname was SRD $267 million, or 16% of total farm receipts. This figure reflects strong market price support to livestock producers at the expense of consumers, while rice producers receive disincentives due to agricultural policies. Between 2015 and 2018, support to general services for agriculture, the most efficient way to promote innovative development, decreased from 44% to only 6% of the total support to the agricultural sector. The fisheries sector was mainly supported through the fuel tax concessions. The amount of the general services support to fisheries was less than the cost of the fishing licenses. While agriculture contributes 19% to the Surinames greenhouse gas emissions, the study found that agricultural policies do not favour climate-affecting activities in agriculture.

Beyond Leakages: Quantifying the Effects of Corruption on the Water and Sanitation Sector in Latin America and the Caribbean
The importance of transparency and governance as determinants of efficiency, effectiveness, and quality of service undoubtedly occupy a key place among the most relevant lessons learned from the reforms implemented in the Water and Sanitation sector (W&S) in Latin America and the Caribbean in the last two decades. In order to support data-driven policy reform aimed at increasing efficiency in public investments, the present analysis focuses on estimating direct financial costs in terms of contract award prices and direct social costs in terms of project delivery quality (measured as frequency of delays and cancellations). The following questions are explored: i) What are the scale and types of corruption affecting W&S services?; ii) What is the effect of corruption in terms of tender completion?; iii) What is the financial impact of corruption for W&S services providers, such as high cost of infrastructure development? Considering limitations of data and measurement, the analysis suggests that a decisive policy reform reducing risks by about two-thirds (aggressive scenario) could result in substantial savings across the sector: 7-16% of prices for standardized (e.g. chairs) as well as unique goods (e.g. pipes), and 10-19% lower incidence of cancellations and delays. While these may sound modest in percentage terms, total savings from effective anticorruption reforms are substantial, given the high value of total spending in the sector.

¿Cómo serán los futuros ecosistemas de emprendimiento en la pospandemia?: tendencias y escenarios en América Latina
En tiempos de crisis sólo la imaginación es tan importante como el conocimiento. Nunca más vigente que hoy esta frase de Albert Einstein, cuando los emprendedores, los gobiernos y las demás organizaciones de los ecosistemas de emprendimiento e innovación enfrentan desafíos inéditos. Además de atender el presente, estos desafíos incluyen la necesidad de construir el futuro de la pospandemia. En este contexto, el presente estudio busca aportar elementos orientadores tanto para el pensamiento estratégico como para la acción. ¿Cómo serán los ecosistemas del mañana? ¿Qué tipo de oportunidades se abren? ¿Estará el talento necesario y los apoyos requeridos disponible para capitalizarlas? ¿Qué pasará con las políticas de emprendimiento? ¿Y con las organizaciones de soporte y los inversionistas? Para responder a estos interrogantes se realizó primero una consulta a una serie de grupos de expertos a nivel global que fue complementada a nivel de América Latina con una encuesta a 150 referentes de ecosistemas. Lejos de pretender una proyección de escenarios, los resultados que se presentan aportan un análisis de las expectativas compartidas por actores clave. Se trata sin duda de un material de interés para estimular el debate en torno a la construcción de escenarios, un ejercicio muy necesario tanto para los hacedores de políticas como para los inversionistas, las organizaciones de soporte, los centros de formación e investigación y los mismos emprendedores.

Innovation in Economic Analysis and Evaluation Approaches for Coastal Protection and Restoration Investments in the Caribbean
Coastal zones are among the most economically productive areas of the world. However, they are also among the most vulnerable regions to disasters triggered by natural hazards. Recent recognition of the role of healthy coastal and marine ecosystems for reducing vulnerability in coastal communities has led to the design of coastal management strategies that incorporate direct investments in these ecosystems. However, there is a lack of knowledge and understanding of the economic benefits of coastal and marine ecosystems for society, which has led to the degradation of these ecosystems and hindered the prospects of sustainable investments in coastal resilience projects, including green infrastructure. In this paper, we analyze the economic importance and ongoing threats of the main marine and coastal ecosystems of the Wider Caribbean region, and identify the underlying economic causes of their deterioration. The need to improve coastal resilience in the Wider Caribbean has led to innovative approaches for the protection of coastal zones and their population from erosion and flood risk, prioritizing the role of marine and coastal ecosystems for coastal protection and vulnerability reduction in coastal communities. Based on this review, we develop an analytical framework for economic analyses and impact evaluations of coastal restoration and protection programs, with the objective of allowing practitioners to properly identify the cost-effectiveness of nature-based solutions for coastal resilience.
