Leading the Sustainable Development of Cities: Subnational Management Team
The purpose of this TC is the development and implementation of a program to strengthen institutional capacities to subnational management teams and other emerging cities of intermediate size of LAC (the Program) to help meet the challenges of governance that sustainable development poses. The program focuses on strengthening the knowledge, skills and working practices of the mayors, secretaries / ministers, general coordinators, managers, area managers, and professional operatives of subnational governments and officials-practitioners of centers of excellence or development work organizations that will collaborate with the replicability of the program, strengthening their capacities to design and implement sustainable development plans enabling them to face the new challenges of cities. This CT is a pilot that aims to prepare and test the design of program, develop, implement and evaluate materials, structure, content, modules, methodologies, case studies, hearing audiences and experts. It is expected that as a result of the program could be incorporated into future Bank operations with sub-national entities, a component of strengthening institutional management to help create conditions for the analysis, diagnosis and identification of solutions; and implementation of investment programs in many sectors with components of public management that allow the improvement of the services to the citizens and a more transparent accountability. The program would have a theoretical and practical approach, promoting learning aimed at strengthening the knowledge applied to solve problems and the transformation of the institutional environment of the participants. With this perspective, the materials developed as part of the program, the activities and face-to-face or virtual classes, foster among participants, the collective construction of knowledge about the diagnosis and sub-context situation in which they work and promote the development of skills, attitudes and work practices to modern management allowing sustainable development. The program will run using methodologies designed to reinforce skills and abilities of the participant¿s oriented to economic growth and sustainable development, including self-assessment tools of subnational governments to enable them to have a shared diagnosis of the situation and identify priority actions. This program will use a range of diagnostic tools, including diagnostic tool developed by the Emerging Sustainable Cities Initiative (ICES).

Taxation when Markets are not Competitive: Evidence from a Loan Tax
We study the interaction of market structure and tax-and-subsidy strategies utilizing pass-through estimates from the unexpected introduction of a loan tax in Ecuador, a quantitative model, and a comprehensive commercial-loan dataset. Our model generalizes bank competition theories, including Bertrand-Nash competition, credit rationing, and joint-maximization. While we find the loan tax is distortionary, neglecting the possibility of non-competitive lending inflates estimated tax deadweight loss by 80% because non-competitive banks internalize some of the burden. Conversely, subsidies are less effective in non-competitive settings. If competition were stronger, tax revenue would be 10% lower. The findings suggest that policymakers should consider market structure in tax-and-subsidy strategies.

The Promises of Digital Bank Accounts for Low-income Individuals
The push for adopting digital modes of payment rests on three promises: increased efficiency of transactions, increased financial inclusion, and improvements in the financial well-being of low-income individuals. We experimentally test the extent to which these promises are fulfilled. We exploit the random assignment into an intervention to encourage direct deposits of recurrent government benefits into digital bank accounts in Colombia. Switching from cash to direct deposits reduces disbursement errors and increases access to benefits among eligible beneficiaries. It also increases the ownership of bank accounts, the demand for formal loans, and loan take-up among individuals without a financial history. However, we do not find evidence of improvements in financial well-being across any of our metrics.

Independent Country Program Review (ICPR) Implementation Guidelines
These Guidelines seek to provide greater clarity on how OVE will conduct Independent Country Program Reviews (ICPRs), a periodic product introduced through the approval of OVE's Country Product Protocol by the Boards. The purpose of this document is to provide transparency to the Boards, country authorities, and IDB and IDB Invest Management on the methods, tools and processes used by OVE in the ICPRs, and to foster consistency in their preparation. The Guidelines are the exclusive responsibility of OVE, in compliance with the Boards' mandate of conducting ICPRs under the conditions and principles approved in the Protocol. It is expected that the systematization introduced by the Guidelines will also contribute to internal and external training activities, and to extracting common lessons across countries.
