Aid-for-Trade Strategy in LAC
AfT can help countries identify both foreign private investment and increased donor concessional and non-concessional financing. Mainstreaming trade into countries' development strategies and clarifying needs and priorities will improve access and delivery of resources and ensure ownership and buy-in from recipient countries. AfT can raise awareness of the potential gains available to developing countries from deepened integration into the global economy, identify specific binding constraints that prevent countries from fully realizing the benefits of trade, and identify how AfT will address those constraints. The objective of this KCP is to strengthen AfT in LAC, by means of supporting institutional and technical capacity in three (3) countries and in the Caribbean by promoting intra-regional cooperation in the region as a whole. It is also intended to provide greater clarity on SSC and to develop innovative mechanisms for its delivery. The results of this KCP are: (1) Both national and regional strategies identifying trade-related priorities, gaps, and proposed activities for funding by donors and investors; (2) Increased coordination between donors and between donors and the country; (3) Increased knowledge on alternative donors and financing mechanisms; (4) Institutional-strengthening through the elaboration of the strategies; and (5) A closing of the gap between the demand and the supply of Aft.

Cross-Border Intra-Firm Trade and the Propagation of Idiosyncratic Shocks: A New Dataset
We study how disruptions in international production networks propagate across countries. We use comprehensive data on natural disasters around the globe over the last two decades from the EM-DAT and SHELDUS database to identify exogenous shocks to sourcing foreign inputs. We then trace out the effect of these shocks on activity of multinationals located in the United States. and their network of foreign affiliates using U.S. Bill of Lading microdata and data on domestic and international ownership linkages from Orbis. Our findings indicate that major natural disasters can have an economically significant negative impact even far from the directly affected areas. Furthermore, the strength of the propagation depends on whether the shocks led to disruptions in intra-firm or arms-length trade. This technical note provides detailed information on the construction of the novel dataset used in Alviarez et al. (2021).

Digital Technologies and Globalization: A Survey of Research and Policy Applications
In recent years, the world has witnessed the rise of multiple specific digital technologies, including online trade platforms, robotics, artificial intelligence (AI), 3D printing, cloud computing, blockchain, and financial technology (fintech). These digital technologies are fundamentally transforming the ways that firms and individuals — as both workers and consumers — communicate, search, trade, and invest. They are also substantially changing how governments design and implement trade and investment policies and programs and, in so doing, how they interact with firms, individuals, and each other. This paper reviews the growing empirical literature on the trade, investment, and broader development effects of the adoption of specific digital technologies. It also describes the policy applications of these technologies and discusses the incipient empirical literature on the impacts thereof. Based on this review, it identifies several open questions and avenues of future research that may be useful for deepening our understanding of digital technologies and their policy implications.
