Development of a Broadband Plan and Review of Regulatory Framework
The overall goal of this Technical Cooperation (TC) is to provide support to the Nicaraguan Government in the process of promoting broadband universalization in terms of access and services, taking into account the efforts that the government is already making in the deployment of other networks such as the new satellite. Specifically, the TC will assist the government in identifying the required investments and regulatory reforms necessary to promote broadband development, and to design a national plan towards improving universal access and service in Nicaragua.

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.

Colaboración y alianzas para la financiación de la lucha contra el cambio climático
Durante más de diez años, el BID ha forjado alianzas estratégicas con fuentes externas de financiación para invertir en un desarrollo bajo en carbono y resiliente al clima. En 2022, el Directorio del BID aprobó más de 500 millones de dólares de fondos externos procedentes de los Climate Investment Funds (CIF, por sus siglas en inglés), el Fondo Verde para el Clima (GCF, por sus siglas en inglés) y el NDC Pipeline Accelerator (ACL). Esta cifra puede parecer bastante significativa, sin embargo, la Agencia Internacional de la Energía establece que 4 billones de dólares anuales será el coste para llegar a cero emisiones netas en 2050.

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.

Nature-based Solutions in Latin America and the Caribbean: Support from the Inter-American Development Bank
Governments across Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC) face challenges in extending and maintaining infrastructure to serve their populations, especially as climate change and ecosystem degradation endanger communities and infrastructure assets across the region. To help address these challenges, the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) aims to increase its support of Nature-based Solutions (NBS) in accordance with the banks 2020 Environmental and Social Sustainability Mainstreaming Action Plan. This Issue Brief serves two main functions. First, it describes IDB's growing focus on NBS and provides a tour of IDBs main offerings regarding NBS project support and investment. Second, it serves as a baseline of IDBs activities related to NBS from which the bank and partners can build upon moving forward. Going forward, IDB will ramp up support for clients to incorporate NBS considerations and opportunity analysis in country agreements and throughout all stages of project preparation, from investment identification to execution.

En la Declaración sobre Gestión Sostenible del Plástico (2019), los países miembros de la Alianza del Pacífico (AP), Colombia, Chile, México, y Perú, junto a Ecuador, tomaron la decisión de enfrentar la gestión de plásticos de manera sostenible, con un enfoque de economía circular.
