Independent Country Program Review (ICPR) Implementation Guidelines
These Guidelines seek to provide greater clarity on how OVE will conduct Independent Country Program Reviews (ICPRs), a periodic product introduced through the approval of OVE's Country Product Protocol by the Boards. The purpose of this document is to provide transparency to the Boards, country authorities, and IDB and IDB Invest Management on the methods, tools and processes used by OVE in the ICPRs, and to foster consistency in their preparation. The Guidelines are the exclusive responsibility of OVE, in compliance with the Boards' mandate of conducting ICPRs under the conditions and principles approved in the Protocol. It is expected that the systematization introduced by the Guidelines will also contribute to internal and external training activities, and to extracting common lessons across countries.

The “Tiendita” and the Survival of Microenterprises Amid Competition from Large Firms
With its bountiful assortments of everything from tomatoes and milk to cigarettes and dog food, the little grocery store or “tiendita” is as ubiquitous and cherished as the bakeries, small liquor stores, and tacos stands that dot nearly every neighborhood in Mexico’s cities. But over the last 20 years, tienditas have faced significant competition from

The Role of Agents and the Nature of Limitations in the Performance of Development Projects
Development practitioners aspire to improve lives, but achieving results is challenging. What prevents operations from achieving their objectives? Answering this question is critical to promote success. This Discussion Paper proposes to analyze operations first to identify if they faced limitations to effectiveness, then to identify which key stakeholders faced those limitations, and finally, whether such limitations were exogenous. Such an approach may strengthen accountability and learning. An analysis of 62 project completion reports evaluated in 2022 by the Inter-American Development Bank shows that success was contingent upon critical agents performance and the influence of exogenous factors. Four in 10 operations that failed had agents other than the executing agency face challenges. The same share of operations had agents face limitations derived from the project environment or third-party inputs beyond their control. Despite limitations, the proposed framework may provide insights for future work that promotes effectiveness.

Innovación y competitividad en las cadenas globales de valor de la minería del cobre: el caso de los proveedores locales de Perú
Perú es el segundo mayor productor y exportador de cobre del mundo. No obstante, el sector carece de encadenamientos hacia atrás; en este contexto, la penetración de proveedores innovadores capaces de suministrar productos y servicios de valor agregado es incipiente. Este artículo explora las alternativas para aprovechar el posicionamiento internacional de Perú en la industria minera, con miras a fomentar la innovación y el desarrollo de los proveedores locales. A partir de un análisis de datos y entrevistas a actores de la industria local, la investigación--enmarcada en las cadenas globales de valor--advierte que la integración de un mayor número de proveedores de alto valor agregado a la cadena de valor cuprífera se encuentra restringida por debilidades en el sistema nacional de innovación. Se agrega a esto que la política nacional cuprífera pone escaso énfasis en la necesidad de innovar y agregar valor. A los efectos de generar una masa crítica de proveedores fuertes e innovadores, Perú deberá crear instituciones y mecanismos de coordinación sólidos conducentes al desarrollo del sector; asimismo, deberá favorecer el ingreso de proveedores domésticos en la cadena e incentivarlos a la innovación y el escalamiento. La investigación presenta recomendaciones en estas áreas, así como ejemplos de otros países mineros que han logrado resolver estos desafíos.

La “tiendita” y la supervivencia de las microempresas en medio de la competencia de las grandes empresas
Con su abundante surtido de todo tipo de productos, desde tomates y leche hasta cigarrillos y alimento para perros, las “tienditas” son tan omnipresentes y apreciadas como las panaderías, pequeñas licorerías y puestos de tacos que están esparcidos por casi todos los barrios en las ciudades mexicanas y alrededor del mundo en las economías emergentes.
