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.

BIDeconomics Panamá: panorama de oportunidades
Panamá es un referente de crecimiento para América Latina y el Caribe. Cerca de 6 por ciento ha sido el incremento promedio anual de su PIB entre 2000 y 2019. Incluso, pese a los desafíos postpandemia, el aumento promedio ha sido de 4 por ciento hasta 2023. Si bien este progreso ha acercado al país a los niveles de ingreso de economías más avanzadas, persisten retos significativos como los desequilibrios territoriales, el reducido espacio fiscal e insuficiencias en el gasto social, lo que ha conllevado a fuertes disparidades en el nivel de vida de la gente. En tal contexto, es esencial implementar una serie de medidas que reduzcan la desigualdad, faciliten la diversificación productiva y promuevan un manejo eficiente y sostenible de los recursos tanto financieros como naturales, especialmente el agua. Resulta clave apoyar a los sectores que han impulsado el crecimiento previo, a la vez que se eleva la calidad de vida de los panameños. Consolidarse como una economía de ingresos altos, de manera inclusiva y sostenible, es a la vez un reto inmenso y una oportunidad grandiosa. Este documento del Grupo BID, justamente, identifica oportunidades en tres pilares temáticos desarrollo humano, bases para la productividad y modernización institucional que pueden contribuir al cumplimiento definitivo de ese gran objetivo.

Programa Maior Cuidado: una intervención integrada de base comunitaria para adultos mayores
Este informe presenta una visión general de una nueva intervención comunitaria para personas mayores que viven en barrios carenciados de la ciudad brasileña de Belo Horizonte: el Programa Maior Cuidado (PMC). Desde 2011, el PMC es administrado conjuntamente por las Secretarías Municipales de Salud y Asistencia Social para apoyar a adultos mayores dependientes que viven en familias vulnerables. Estas familias reciben hasta 20 horas de apoyo por semana de profesionales de apoyo al cuidado familiar. Los Centros de Salud y los Centros de Referencia de Asistencia Social realizan análisis conjuntos mensuales de los casos y trabajan en estrecha colaboración con los cuidadores contratados como profesionales de apoyo a los cuidados familiares para anticipar y responder a nuevos problemas. Entre 2011 y diciembre de 2022, 3.062 familias han recibido o continúan recibiendo apoyo. Con base en un conjunto de evaluaciones cualitativas y cuantitativas, mostramos que el PMC funciona de manera eficaz y parece generar una serie de efectos positivos. Estos efectos incluyen la mejora de la salud y el bienestar de los adultos mayores, la reducción del estrés y la sobrecarga de los cuidadores familiares y una mayor eficiencia en la utilización de los servicios ambulatorios de salud y las hospitalizaciones. El PMC también ofrece una valiosa oportunidad de subsistencia para los cuidadores que emplea. Un análisis de costos estima que el costo mensual per cápita del PMC en abril de 2023 fue de R$916,2 (173 dólares), lo que es sustancialmente inferior al de intervenciones alternativas. Estas evaluaciones positivas llevaron al municipio de Belo Horizonte a ampliar el programa y al Ministerio de Salud a apoyar proyectos piloto similares en otras ciudades. Evaluaciones futuras de estos proyectos piloto se sumarán a la evidencia disponible sobre el PMC y su potencial adecuación para otras partes de Brasil y países similares.

Nicaragua: generando impacto para mejorar vidas: resultados recientes en proyectos de acceso a salud y energia de poblaciones vulnerables financiados por el grupo BID
Las zonas más apartadas y vulnerables de Nicaragua han sido particularmente afectadas por la falta de acceso a servicios de salud y al suministro de energía eléctrica. Ambos son desafíos en los que se ha venido trabajando, con apoyo del Grupo BID, para ofrecer mejores condiciones de vida a las personas. Este documento recoge, de manera breve, algunos de los datos más destacados al respecto, desde la mejor cobertura en materia de atención médica y una importante reducción en las muertes materno-infantiles, hasta el aumento en la cobertura eléctrica a partir de fuentes renovables de energía.

Territorial Framework for Inclusive, Sustainable, and Green Development of the Andean Amazon Region
The Amazon is one of the most complex and richest resources in the world. With its 5.5 million km2 of dense tropical forest and 7.9 million km2 of river basin, it is one of the most biodiverse and richest regions on the planet. In Bolivia, Colombia, Ecuador, Peru and Venezuela - the Andean Amazon Region (AAR) these 2.7 million km2 are also home to approximately 24.7 million people, including more than 200 known indigenous groups. Despite its advantages and the efforts invested, the AAR, its territory and population, continue to be exposed to a number of social, economic and conservation challenges. These challenges have not allowed a responsible use of this rich and diverse natural asset, contributing to a rapid process of deforestation, high levels of poverty and exclusion, and low levels of productivity. The question arising from these challenges is: How to promote an inclusive and sustainable development model that at the same time protects the environment and the natural capital of the AAR?. In order to respond to this question, this study conducts a development gap analysis for the AAR. The methodology uses a combination of quantitative and qualitative techniques to identify and measure development gaps in the territory, both at the sectoral and multisectoral levels, and proposes an intervention model based on networks and nodes. The analysis is based on the premise that development models in this region should focus efforts on three major areas that will make it possible to address the internal and external challenges of each country in a focused and efficient manner, leading to the closing of development gaps: 1. Taking responsible advantage of existing wealth, including the millenary knowledge of its population and territories; 2. Protecting the environment and natural resources; 3. Promoting an inclusive and green productive model. The results show that 85.6% of the population and 94% of the territory of the study experience at least one development gap. Regarding the area affected, gaps in access to drinking water, access to primary and secondary education in rural areas, and investment in green and inclusive activities are the most severe, involving 45.9%, 45.2% and 52.1% of the area, respectively. Whereas gaps related to investment in climate resilience, access to power substations, and investment in green and inclusive activities affect the largest number of people: 54%, 41.9% and 35.7% of the population, respectively.

Policy Options for Combating Pandemics in Informal Settlements
Pandemics, while devastating for populations at large, deliver a disproportionate impact when they sweep through the dense informal settlements of developing countries with their narrow alleyways and broken dwellings. Death rates, high everywhere, soared through such places during the COVID-19 crisis. Until recently, however, no research had been conducted on the role of informal settlements
