Findings suggest that the most pressing barriers to finance

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.

Exporting and Environmental Performance: Where You Export Matters
Empirical analyses that rely on micro-level panel data have found that exporters are generally less pollutant than non-exporters. While alternative explanations have been proposed, firm level data has not been used to examine the role of destination markets behind the relationship between exports and pollution. In this paper we argue that because consumers in high-income countries have higher valuations for clean environments than consumers in developing countries, exporters targeting high-income countries are more likely to improve their environmental outcomes than exporters targeting destinations where valuations for the environment are not high. Using a panel of firm-level data from Chile we find support to this hypothesis. A 10 percentage point increase in the share of exports to high-income countries is associated with a reduction in CO2 pollution intensity of about 16%. The results have important implications for firms in developing countries aiming to target high-income markets.

The Impact of ISO 14001 Environmental Standards on Exports
Analyses that examine the role of international standards on export performance has been concentrated on quality certifications. Very little is known about the impact of environmental certifications on exports. In this paper we employ firm-level data from Ecuador to assess the impact of the ISO 14001 environmental certification on export outcomes. The results show that holding an ISO 14001 increases the likelihood of becoming an exporter by 0.31 percentage points (equivalent to 4%), and that this positive effect is concentrated among large firms. We did not find evidence that the environmental certification has a causal impact on the level or the growth rate of exports. Consequently, the results suggest that the ISO 14001 certification is most useful in reducing information frictions, allowing firms to initiate export transactions.

Why Agricultural Exporters Should Consider Organic Certifications
Organic agriculture is a rapidly expanding market that can provide countries in Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC) with opportunities to differentiate their products and diversify their foreign sales away from commodities. To understand this potential, we examine the effects of organic certification on firms’ foreign sales. In so doing, we focus on two Latin

El papel de las pymes en el crecimiento de las exportaciones de los países
Las pequeñas y medianas empresas (pymes) pueden contribuir significativamente al crecimiento y la diversificación de las exportaciones de un país en el largo plazo, y las organizaciones de promoción del comercio (OPC) pueden cumplir una función importante en este proceso en los países en desarrollo. A esta conclusión llegamos tras analizar datos transaccionales de las exportaciones peruanas registradas en un cuarto de siglo, entre 1994 y 2019. Hagamos una analogía con las películas.
