Upgrading Institutional Capacities in Innovation Policy in Chile: Choices, Design, and Assessments
Innovation is crucial for development. A set of institutional capacities and coordinated actions between the public and private sectors are required to drive large mission-oriented innovation policies (MOIPs) to address priority issues and set a direction for the path of development. This work identifies what restrictions exist in institutional and policy capacities that hinder the design and implementation of MOPs in Chile. This work is based on a case study design. The study analyzes the design and implementation of two strategic programs for innovation and development in the solar energy and mining sectors. The study showed that the capacities of the programs analyzed were evident in the construction of a shared vision and the identification of innovation-led solutions for the development of the two sectors, but the lack of leadership from the government hinders the implementation of the programs, particularly because of the lack of coordination between government agencies and ministries for budget allocation and strategy definition.

Soluciones basadas en la naturaleza en América Latina y el Caribe: apoyo del Banco Interamericano de Desarrollo
Los gobiernos de América Latina y el Caribe se enfrentan al reto de ampliar y mantener las infraestructuras para atender a sus poblaciones, especialmente a medida que el cambio climático y la degradación de los ecosistemas ponen en peligro a las comunidades y a los activos de infraestructuras de toda la región. Para ayudar a afrontar estos retos, el Banco Interamericano de Desarrollo (BID) aspira incrementar su apoyo a las soluciones basadas en la naturaleza (SBN) de acuerdo con el Plan de Acción de Sostenibilidad Ambiental y Social 2020 del banco. Este resumen sirve para dos funciones. En primer lugar, se describe el creciente interés del BID en las SBN y ofrece un recorrido por las principales ofertas del BID en materia de apoyo a proyectos e inversiones en SBN. En segundo lugar, sirve como línea base de las actividades de BID en relación a SBN, a partir de la cual el banco y sus socios pueden seguir avanzando. En adelante, el BID intensificará su apoyo a los clientes para que incorporen las consideraciones de las SBN y el análisis de oportunidades en los acuerdos con los países y en todas las etapas de preparación de los proyectos, desde la identificación de la inversión hasta su ejecución.
