Options to Achieve Carbon Neutrality in Chile: An Assessment Under Uncertainty
Chile aims to reach carbon neutrality. Its Nationally Determined Contribution (NDC) commits the country to reach net-zero emissions of greenhouse gases by 2050 and sets targets for emissions to be reduced progressively over time. To comply with the goals of the NDC, line ministries have considered a set of sectoral transformations, such as closing coal-fired power plants, promoting electric mobility, and increasing forest captures which, taken together, could bring emissions down to zero. This study evaluates how these sectoral transformations would fare under a wide range of economic, environmental, and technological uncertainties. It identifies the vulnerabilities of the strategy, that is, under what conditions sectoral transformations are insufficient to achieve net-zero emissions. It then quantifies options for making sectoral plans to deliver the NDC more robust, that is to reduce the likelihood of not achieving carbon neutrality. Additional measures discussed include speeding up retirement of coal-fired power plants, promotion of telework and non-motorized transport, reduction of beef consumption, expansion of thermal retrofitting of houses, increased afforestation, sustainable forest management, and expansion of protected areas. These measures are based on ideas proposed by sectoral experts during a participatory process. Finally, a macroeconomic evaluation finds that enhancing the set of measures put forward to comply with the NDC would result in a net gain of 0.8% of gross domestic product (GDP) by 2050, on the top of 4.4% GDP gain that the current NDC plans would bring.

Más de 7 años apoyando la acción por el clima: IKI y el BID
Generar un cambio transformador requerirá que el BID y sus socios trabajen a múltiples niveles, desde el gobierno, las grandes corporaciones y las medianas y pequeñas empresas hasta los beneficiarios. La mentalidad avatar del BID tendrá que centrarse en ayudar a los países a aplicar enfoques innovadores para aprovechar las contribuciones de IKI y otros fondos, facilitando al mismo tiempo transiciones efectivas hacia economías libres de carbono y resilientes al clima.

The IDB Group supports the region through nature-based in Central America to address development challenges which are exacerbated by climate change. With a portfolio of about US $ 200 million, the Bank supports the design and implementation of REDD strategies focused on protection and management sustainable forest, value chain support and climate finance resource mobilization. These programs support countries to meet not only commitments under their NDCs, but also with national development priorities.

Gender, Forests and Climate Change
As users of forest products and guardians of traditional knowledge, women have always been involved in forestry. Nevertheless, their access to forest resources and benefits and participation in forest management is limited compared to mens despite the fact that trees are more important to women, who depend on them for their families food security, income generation and cooking fuel. La presente guía pretende facilitar la incorporación de una perspectiva de género en las operaciones de mitigación y adaptación al cambio climático en bosques, con especial atención a todas aquellas enmarcadas dentro de REDD. La guía aborda 4 temas -cadenas de valor, esquemas de pagos ambientales, leña y biodiversidad- en los que se puede establecer una relación más directa (i) sobre cómo los impactos del cambio climático afectan a las mujeres en el bosque y (ii) sobre cómo las medidas de mitigación y adaptación les impactan en el acceso a recursos y la distribución de beneficios.

Payment for Ecosystem Services in Costa Rica: Evaluation of a Country-wide Program
Several countries have implemented payment-for-ecosystem-services (PES) programs, buoyed by the promise of these programs as a win-win strategy that would allow both the conservation of natural resources, and the reduction of poverty for rural households and communities. Our study evaluates the effect on deforestation of Costa Rica's PES program, one of the oldest country-wide programs in the world. Costa Rica approved the 1996 Forest Law (Law No. 7575), creating a PES program that compensates landowners for forest conservation. We estimate these effects using an event study design with staggered entry into treatment. Our results show a statistically significant effect for the first year with a decrease in deforestation of 0.21 ha, but not for the following years. Given that the baseline level of deforestation in our sample is low, the magnitude of the effect is large. When compared to the pre-2016 average level of within farm deforestation, our estimated effect would imply a 100% reduction in deforestation for the first year after enrollment. Given the program pays the participants for a 5-year period, and that the effect is significant only during the first year, it may be beneficial for the program to reduce its length and implement required simplified annual contract renewals or other behavioral interventions to reduce noncompliance in subsequent years.
