The Potential for Ride-hailing Integration with Mass Transit Systems: A choice Experiment in Latin America
As transportation alternatives facilitated by TNCs (Transportation Network Companies) have gained popularity around the world, research has increasingly focused on understanding their impacts on urban mobility, with several studies examining whether they are competing with public transit trips, increasing vehicle kilometers, or contributing to congestion. Recent policy discussions have turned to whether these services could also have positive benefits, such as complementing mass transit services as a first- and last-mile solution. Most research to date has focused on industrialized countries, with little work focusing on Global South cities. Seeking to fill significant evidence gaps on the impacts of ride-hailing on travel behavior, this paper builds on a stated preference survey in three large metropolitan areas in Latin America (Bogota, Medellin, and Mexico City) to evaluate the potential of introducing an integrated scheme of ride-hailing and mass transit. The scenario of the integrated scheme places ride-hailing as a filler of the first- and last-mile gap left by mass transit. We use discrete choice models and simulations to assess the potential for modal shifts under different pricing scenarios. Results suggest limited feasibility (or modal shifts) of an integrated system of ride-hailing with mass transit under the scenarios considered. Even with significant discounts on the integrated fare, for two of the three cases, the additional ridership would remain comparatively low. Nevertheless, this opens the door for considering other app-based mobility options operating under a sharing perspective and that can reduce operative costs in an integrated scheme.

DIGITAL 101 – DIGITAL TECHNOLOGIES
The concept of Digital Transformation can be described as adopting business processes and practices to help the organization compete effectively in an increasingly digital world.  This definition of digital transformation has two important implications for managers: First, it means that digital transformation is fundamentally about how your business responds to digital trends that are occurring whether or not you initiated them, like them, or want them.  Second, it means that how an organization implements technology is only a small part of digital transformation. In cases where digital transformation does involve implementing new technologies, technology is only part of the story.  The digital transformation requires that institutions and all its workflows and org charts be transformed in order to build and sustain digital services. Thus, there is a clear need to provide capacity building to all stakeholders in various areas associated with the digital transformation.

Artificial Intelligence for Job Seeking: How to Enhance Labor Intermediation in Public Employment Services (Executive Summary)
One of the main challenges of employment services -in particular labor intermediation systems- is to facilitate the adequate matching between the required skills in open vacancies and those that job seekers have. This challenge stems in part from the difficulty of matching the skills, competencies, education, and job experience that a candidate reports to have, with the functions the potential employer wants to assign to this prospect employee. This document presents a summary of the analysis of how artificial intelligence (AI) can be used as a tool to enhance the matching approach, to the extent of considering the existing relations in various occupations, which can include more information in the analysis of the profiles of job candidates. This document is part of the fAIr LAC initiative studies of the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB). Its objective is to promote the ethical and responsible use of technology in artificial intelligence-based systems in the region, especially those that relate to the provision of social services.

Lo metropolitano: escala, complejidad y gobernanza
¿Cómo definimos la unidad territorial metropolitana? ¿Cómo establecemos límites territoriales que garantizan la integración de sus sistemas ecológicos y sociales? ¿Cómo gestionamos los flujos migratorios y los condicionantes del cambio climático que ejercen presión sobre las infraestructuras metropolitanas? En los últimos años, la literatura de desarrollo ha revelado conflictos emergentes de las metrópolis de América Latina y el Caribe. Las preguntas parecen ser simples y de naturaleza apremiante, pero las respuestas implican desafíos críticos de conocimiento y coordinación institucional. Por ejemplo, reconocemos que las personas se mueven, interactúan y satisfacen sus necesidades más allá de los límites político-administrativos, pero no existen suficientes arreglos institucionales que consideren conjuntamente los sistemas de movilidad y la distribución de servicios y bienes territoriales. Esta publicación nos invita a revisar nuevamente la forma en que hemos delimitado la Unidad Territorial Metropolitana. Los contenidos se organizan en tres capítulos que avanzan hacia la construcción de una gobernanza sensible a su escala y complejidad dentro de la región. El primero reflexiona sobre la escala, incluyendo perspectivas históricas y técnicas, como la incorporación de tecnologías que actualizan datos geoespaciales de ocupación y cambio de uso de suelo. El segundo profundiza en las dimensiones de complejidad e intersectorialidad, como la economía, la movilidad, la equidad, el cambio climático, la salud, la calidad de vida y los desafíos de la migración. El tercero se nutre del conocimiento acumulado para recorrer aspectos claves de la gobernanza metropolitana y su sostenibilidad fiscal. Por último, la revisión de experiencias internacionales entrega lecciones sobre las distintas formas en que se ha asumido la unidad metropolitana dentro de las infraestructuras institucionales. Es necesario anticipar aspectos claves de la escala y las dimensiones necesarias para construir acuerdos institucionales efectivos. La invitación es a definir antes de formular una gobernanza metropolitana.

A un clic de la transición: Economía digital en Centroamérica y la República Dominicana
La economía digital está tomando forma en la región de Centroamérica y República Dominicana (CAPARD), cuestionando las nociones convencionales sobre cómo se estructuran e interactúan las empresas y cómo los consumidores obtienen bienes, servicios, e información. Este reporte presenta una visión general de la economía digital en la región CAPARD, además se incluye México para tener una referencia sobre la posible evolución de la digitalización en estos países en el mediano y largo plazo. En particular se describe la adopción de tecnologías de la información y la comunicación (TIC), se analizan los ingresos, así como su evolución y la de los usuarios en la economía digital. La economía digital presenta una oportunidad para una mayor generación de ingresos y desarrollo productivo en la región, y el confinamiento implementado como respuesta a la pandemia de la COVID-19 ha acelerado la transformación digital, en particular en los sectores de comercio y servicios electrónicos. Dado que no existe consenso sobre la definición o cuantificación de la economía digital, los resultados de este reporte deben visualizarse como una primera estimación conservadora.
