Climate Resilience and High-value Fruit Exports in Nicaragua
The MIF will support the growth and consolidation of an eco-efficient agro-industrial processing model for tropical fruits that will be used for the production of specialized organic products. The project will link about 1,250 smallholder producers (800 new producers) to BASA's provider network. The model represents a sustainable income-generating market option that will improve the productivity and resilience of the participating smallholder producers

Costos y beneficios de lograr la carbono-neutralidad en América Latina y el Caribe
¿Son el desarrollo y la descarbonización objetivos contradictorios o complementarios? En este informe, exploramos cómo América Latina y el Caribe pueden mejorar los resultados socioeconómicos y de desarrollo y al mismo tiempo alcanzar cero emisiones netas de gases de efecto invernadero para 2050. Específicamente, presentamos SiSePuede, un conjunto de herramientas de modelado de descarbonización de código abierto que evalúa los costos, beneficios y reducciones de emisiones en toda la economía. Descubrimos que maximizar las acciones podría lograr emisiones netas cero en la región antes de 2050 y 2,7 billones (millones de millones) de dólares netos en beneficios en comparación con el desarrollo más tradicional. Los beneficios incluyen enormes ahorros en costos de combustible; costos evitados por la reducción de la contaminación del aire, la congestión y los accidentes automovilísticos; y el valor de los servicios ecosistémicos de los bosques. Aunque hay muchos caminos hacia las emisiones netas cero, tres acciones son fundamentales: producir electricidad con energías renovables, electrificar el transporte y proteger y restaurar los bosques deteniendo la deforestación y cambiando los patrones de producción de alimentos. Las estrategias que abarcan a toda la economía y que implementan estas acciones a escala pueden reducir drásticamente las emisiones y generar enormes beneficios para la región, incluso en medio de profundas incertidumbres, con una mediana de 1 billón de dólares en beneficios netos en todos los escenarios. Estos beneficios se distribuyen de manera desigual entre sectores y actores y a lo largo del tiempo, por lo que lograrlos y garantizar una transición justa hacia cero emisiones netas requiere que los gobiernos superen importantes barreras financieras, regulatorias, de infraestructura y de otro tipo. Cada país debe adaptar su propia estrategia para abordar los objetivos de desarrollo y emisiones en función de las prioridades, capacidades, recursos y capacidad técnica locales. SiSePuede proporciona una base analítica sólida para respaldar estos esfuerzos.

Comprender la desigualdad de ingresos: el papel de la productividad empresarial
La productividad ha sido reconocida durante mucho tiempo como un determinante clave que moldea las disparidades de ingresos entre países. Estudios recientes sugieren que cerca de la mitad de las diferencias en los ingresos per cápita pueden atribuirse a diferencias en la productividad. Sin embargo, surge la pregunta: ¿qué factores contribuyen a la productividad agregada?

Blueberries and the Promise of Agricultural Innovation in Latin America
Fifteen years ago, few people would have bet on blueberries as a profitable crop for Peru’s northern coast. The region, consisting largely of desert lacked the necessary cold temperatures and a tradition of producing the fruit. But between 2010, when the country exported almost no blueberries to 2020, Peru became a powerhouse in blueberry production

The Virtuous Path of Exports ‘Compatible’ with the Brazilian Amazon Forest
Many times, when we talk about the Amazon, we tend to see its importance as the home of nearly half of the tropical carbon stocks in the world. But a detailed view shows that there is underlying economic potential to catalyze forest conservation and restoration with sustainable social and economic development activities through forest-compatible export

Por qué los exportadores agrícolas deberían considerar las certificaciones orgánicas
La agricultura orgánica es un mercado en rápido crecimiento que puede brindar oportunidades a los países de América Latina y el Caribe (ALC) para diferenciar sus productos y diversificar sus ventas externas más allá de los productos básicos. Para comprender este potencial, analizamos los efectos de las certificaciones orgánicas sobre las exportaciones de las empresas.

Greenhouse Gas Emissions Associated with Argentina's Exports: A Decomposition Exercise
Two databases are constructed on GHG emissions associated with Argentina's international trade between 2000 and 2017, emissions derived from the production of exported goods and those associated with the international transport of exports and imports. Food, beverages, and tobacco, and agriculture, hunting, and related activities, followed by manufactures of metal and chemical products, are the main sectors that explain GHG emissions linked to exports. Petroleum, gas, and mining became less significant. The same sectors explain most of the CO2 emissions linked to the international transportation of exports. For emissions linked to the transportation of imports used in the production of exports, the main contributing sectors are those relating to industrial manufacturing. A decomposition exercise reveals that for emissions linked to the production of exports, the scale effect contributed more significantly in 2000-2011 than in 2012-2017, although in both cases its effect was positive. The composition effect was much less significant. For the emissions associated with international transportation, the main drivers were the scale, sector, and partner effects. Changes in the sector structure of exports appear to have caused more emissions between 2000 to 2011, but the opposite was observed between 2011 and 2017. In the case of emissions from international transportation, changes in the sector structure increased pollution in the case of the transportation of exports, while the opposite was the case for the transportation of imports.

Agricultural Productivity in El Salvador: A Preliminary Analysis
The need to enhance food security while reducing poverty along with the growing threat imposed by climate change clearly reveal that it is imperative to accelerate agricultural productivity growth. This paper estimates micro-level production models to identify the major factors that have contributed to productivity growth in El Salvador, including irrigation, purchased inputs, mechanization, technical assistance, and farm size, among others. The econometric framework adopted in this investigation is grounded on recent panel data stochastic production frontier methodologies. The results obtained from the estimation of these models are used to calculate Total Factor Productivity (TFP) change and to decompose such change into different factors, including technological progress, technical efficiency (TE), and economies of scale. The findings imply that efforts are needed to improve productivity in both technological progress and technical efficiency where the latter is a measurement of managerial performance. This in turn indicates that resources should be devoted to promoting the adoption and diffusion of improved technologies while enhancing managerial capabilities through agricultural extension.

Understanding Income Disparities: The Role of Firm-Embedded Productivity
Productivity has long been recognized as a key determinant of global income disparities between countries. Recent studies suggest that around half of the differences in income per capita can be attributed to productivity variations. However, the question arises: what factors contribute to aggregate productivity? One prevailing view suggests that aggregate productivity is influenced by firm-embedded

Exporting Amazonian Copoazú: A Journey to International Markets

The plane taxies up to the cargo terminal, and pallets of refrigerated crates that look as if they’re holding fragile handicrafts are moved
