El impacto de la ventanilla única para el registro formal de empresas en República Dominicana
Las ventanillas únicas para el registro de empresas pueden reducir significativamente los costos y mejorar el acceso a información para los negocios que entran al sector formal. En este documento se analiza el impacto de un programa a nivel nacional que comprende la implementación de una ventanilla única y la reducción de las tarifas de registro. Además de analizar su impacto en el número de empresas que se formalizan, se explora la manera en que este reconfigura el mercado laboral para mujeres y hombres. El estudio se lleva a cabo en República Dominicana, un país caracterizado por la alta informalidad empresarial y laboral, donde en 2013 el gobierno lanzó la ventanilla digital única Formalízate. Para analizar su impacto se aprovechó el despliegue secuencial del programa en diferentes provincias del país. Los resultados muestran que la introducción del programa en una provincia está asociada con la entrada de un mayor número de microempresas al mercado formal. Cabe señalar que estas empresas se concentran en sectores donde la informalidad era alta antes del despliegue de Formalízate, sobre todo en los sectores de comercio y turismo. Además, los resultados muestran que la participación de las mujeres en la fuerza laboral se ve afectada por el programa, mientras que la participación de los hombres no. De hecho, se observa que la presencia de Formalízate aumentó la participación de las mujeres en el mercado laboral como emprendedoras autoempleadas.

Climate-Resilient Integrated Coastal Zone Management Performance Indicators: Application in Belize
The Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) and the World Resources Institute (WRI) have developed a set of climate-resilient Integrated Coastal Zone Management (ICZM) performance indicators during 2018 which were pilot tested in Belize in early 2019. The indicators highlight key conditions and good practices that can help a country support ICZM, climate adaptation and resilience building in coastal areas. The indicators were developed as a diagnostic tool to assist countries in the Latin American and Caribbean (LAC) region evaluate if they have the governance conditions, institutions, implementation practices and monitoring frameworks in place, as well as the right information available, to help them sustainably manage coastal areas - considering the changing climate. The indicators are not intended for comparison between countries; rather, they are intended to support better within-country-understanding of strengths and weaknesses with regard to ICZM and climate preparedness in coastal areas.

Investment Booms and Institutions: Evidence for the World and the Andean Region
This paper provides evidence of a positive effect of institutions and reforms in initiating investment booms. We constructed an unbalanced panel of 178 countries for the period 19502019 that considered institutions and reforms at different levels and dimensions. We analyzed the effects of these variables on 159 carefully estimated investment boom episodes, controlling for the standard determinants of investment and using a battery of estimation techniques and robustness checks. Overall, marketoriented and democratic institutions favor the advent of investment booms. Structural reforms present mixed effects and in some cases these are nonlinear. While trade and capital account reform have negative effects, domestic finance, product, and labor market reforms have the opposite. Beyond institutions and reforms, we find different effects regarding external, macro, and structural variables.

Títulos verdes e sustentáveis não são modismo, são oportunidades que o Brasil deve aproveitar
Na contramão (ou talvez como efeito) do momento desafiador que caracteriza as economias globais, crescem o interesse e o espaço para um filão particular no mercado financeiro mundial: os títulos de dívida temáticos, sobretudo os sustentáveis – ou sustainaible bonds. Segundo cálculos da consultoria BloombergNEF, o volume de emissões de títulos de dívida ligados a princípios sustentáveis cresceu 29% em 2020, pleno ano de pandemia, somando US$ 732 bilhões.
