Strengthening the Technical Functions of the Department of Energy
The objective of this project is to continue supporting on-going efforts to build strategic capacity management in the Government of Guyana (GoG) to effectively manage the governance of the emerging oil and gas (O&G) sector in the country. This Technical Cooperation (TC) will: (a) provide immediate support to operationalize protocols for management and compliance monitoring of the Stabroek Block Production Sharing Agreement (PSA) through improvements in general monitoring and enforcement standards during administration procedures, production control and verification processes, reserve certification guidelines, and Recordkeeping and information management; (b) provide general training and support to key agencies within the oil & gas regulatory framework with specific attention to the use of the contract management systems; and (c) provide a platform for the dissemination best practices for software solutions for compliance monitoring and for operating requisite internal control systems to maintain data integrity and accuracy in the O&G sector.

Incorporación de almacenamiento de energía en los sistemas eléctricos en LAC: Experiencias internacionales en modelos normativos
Los sistemas de almacenamiento de energía (SAE) son claves para la descarbonización de los sistemas energéticos, ya que son una herramienta muy versátil para proveer flexibilidad a los sistemas. Una mayor participación de las energías renovables intermitentes, como la solar y la eólica, exigen mayor flexibilidad en los sistemas eléctricos para mantener el balance continuo

La energía renovable es más barata y menos contaminante, ¿pueden los gobiernos acelerar la transición?
Imagina tu día en el futuro. Te levantas para preparar tu desayuno en una cocina de inducción eléctrica, que, al igual que todos los electrodomésticos de tu casa, funciona con electricidad procedente de los paneles solares que tienes en tu tejado. Luego, vas a trabajar en tu bicicleta eléctrica o en el tranvía que funciona gracias a la energía de un parque eólico situado en las afueras de la ciudad. Un día más sin huella de carbono. Lo mejor de todo: el precio. La energía renovable es tan barata que no te cobran por la cantidad que consumes. En su lugar, pagas una pequeña cuota mensual que no se ve afectada por los precios internacionales del petróleo o las guerras. Tendrás la luz siempre encendida, ¡aunque pase un huracán!

High and Dry: Stranded Natural Gas Reserves and Fiscal Revenues in Latin America and the Caribbean
The global low-carbon energy transition driven by technological change and government plans to comply with the Paris Agreement makes future gas demand, prices, and associated public revenues uncertain. We assess the prospects for natural gas production and public revenues from royalties and taxation of gas production in Latin American and the Caribbean under different levels of climate policy. We derive demand from a global energy model, and supply from a global natural gas field model and a global oil field model for associated gas. We find that natural gas production and associated public revenue are strongly impacted by decarbonization efforts. The more stringent climate policy is, the lower the production of natural gas. Exporting natural gas from Latin America and the Caribbean does not help the rest of the world reduce greenhouse gas emissions. In scenarios consistent with limiting global warming well-below 2C, incumbent producers and natural gas associated with oil dominate production, drastically limiting opportunities for new gas production in the region and increasing the amount of gas left in the ground. Reduced demand for gas produced from Latin America and the Caribbean is mainly driven by falling demand in the region itself, as energy demand in buildings, industry, and transportation shift towards electricity produced from zero-carbon sources. Cumulative public revenues from natural gas extraction by 2035 range between 42 and 200 billion USD. The lower end of the range reflects scenarios consistent with below 2C warming. In this case, up to 50% of proven, probable, and possible (3P) reserves in the region (excluding Venezuela) remain unburnable the paper provides estimates by country. Our findings confirm that governments cannot rely on revenues from gas extraction if the objectives of the Paris Agreement are to be met. Instead, they need to diversify their fiscal and export strategy away from dependence on gas production. More generally, climate objectives, energy policies and fiscal strategies need to be consistent. We find that natural gas production in Latin America and the Caribbean and associated public revenue are strongly impacted by decarbonization efforts. The more stringent climate policy is, the lower the production of natural gas exporting natural gas does not help the rest of the world reduce greenhouse gas emissions. When global climate policy is stringent, incumbent producers and natural gas associated with oil dominate production, drastically limiting opportunities for new gas production in the region. Cumulative fiscal revenues from natural gas extraction in the region range between 42 and 200 billion USD by 2035. The lower end of the range reflects global climate policy consistent with 1.5C warming. In this case, up to 70% of regional reserves remain unburnable (the paper provides estimates by country). Our findings confirm that governments need to diversify their fiscal and export revenue strategy away from dependency on gas production. Instead, the focus of energy investment should be on the development of wind and solar, and the electrification of energy uses in other sectors, particularly transport, buildings, and industry.

Breve 24. The pharmaceutical price regulation in El Salvador
His policy brief is based on a webinar presented by Luis Alejandro Rivera, Chief of the Pricing Unit at the Dirección Nacional de Medicamentos (National Directorate of Medicines DNM) in El Salvador. The presentation was given on July 2019. Rising prices of medications are a global concern as healthcare expenditures soar and more patients are unable to access the medicines they need. El Salvador has managed to control and lower the price of prescription medicines for both innovator and generic medicines, while maintaining a well-functioning and cost-saving pharmaceutical market. This publication presents takeaways, such as price setting methods, the identification of appropriate market segments, and the introduction of online monitoring platforms, so that other policymakers may use them when introducing price regulation in their own pharmaceutical markets.

Rethinking the Global Microscope for Financial Inclusion: 2021 Key Findings Report
The Global Microscope is a benchmarking index that has assessed the enabling environment for financial inclusion across 55 countries since 2007. This year, the Economist Impact team conducted an assessment of the index's existing data (2007-20) to understand the relationship between key financial inclusion enablers (i.e. policies, regulation and infrastructure) and financial inclusion outcomes. This report discusses the policies that have driven change, the priorities to keep in mind for the future, the tools that will help achieve these goals and the unique ways these priorities and tools apply across different parts of the financial system. Below we summarize our key findings: - A higher overall Global Microscope score showed a positive relationship with the number of accounts with formal financial institutions and mobile money providers among the population. - The Infrastructure domain had the strongest relation to account ownership, documenting the positive effects on inclusion from policies facilitating the expansion of payment systems, strong digital identification regimes, widespread connectivity, and robust credit information systems. The other four domains are Government and Policy Support, Stability and Integrity, Products and Outlets, and Consumer Protection. - Consumer Protection was also positively linked to the prevalence of bank accounts, underscoring the importance of measures to ensure that financial consumers are treated fairly across the range of distribution channels and products. - The magnitude and quality of regulatory implementation significantly impacts financial inclusion. Larger regulatory improvements were associated with increasingly larger gains in account ownership. * The opinions expressed in this work are those of the authors and do not necessarily reflect the views of the IDB, its Board of Directors or the countries they represent, nor of the MIF Donors Committee or the countries it represents.
