Análisis estratégico de la sostenibilidad territorial para proyectos de inversión: Guía de orientación
El desarrollo de los países en América Latina requiere de grandes proyectos de inversión que determinan el ritmo de crecimiento y ofrecen una plataforma para incrementar la competitividad y la inserción en cadenas globales de valor. Sin embargo, los mismos proyectos enfrentan crecientes conflictos socio-ambientales que dificultan o inhiben su desarrollo. Incluso cuando se superan los conflictos, estos importan un alto costo. Resolver esta contradicción requiere asegurar una adecuada inserción de los grandes proyectos en el territorio donde se emplazan. Esta inserción ya no solo requiere obtener los permisos administrativos que la ley exige, sino que también viabilizar su inserción en un territorio, compuesto no únicamente por los límites y características geográficas, sino que también por elementos sociales, culturales y económicos que se construyen en las percepciones y valoraciones de las personas que los habitan o que transitan por ellos. La presente guía tiene por finalidad configurar una metodología de relacionamiento temprano a través de un dispositivo de diálogo que permita una comunicación eficiente entre las comunidades y los titulares de proyectos. Describe dos instancias de participación ciudadana temprana distintas y complementarias para la actual institucionalidad ambiental. La primera corresponde a un procedimiento administrativo reglado que tenga por finalidad generar una instancia de interacción con los distintos órganos de la Administración del Estado con Competencias Ambientales (“OAECA”). La segunda, a un proceso de relacionamiento temprano con las comunidades del territorio en el que se emplazará el proyecto de inversión a través de mesas de diálogo y la realización de un Análisis Estratégico de Sostenibilidad Territorial (“AESOT”). Ambas instancias permitirían simultáneamente resolver tempranamente algunos elementos esenciales del proyecto que fijen el alcance de su posterior evaluación ambiental y definir los ámbitos de los posibles acuerdos de desarrollo territorial que podrían verificarse entre el titular y las comunidades.

Country Program Evaluation: Mexico 2013-2018
As part of its 2019 annual work plan, the Office of Evaluation and Oversight (OVE) has prepared the evaluation of the country program of the Inter-American Development Bank Group (IDBG) with Mexico during 2013-2018. This is the fourth independent evaluation of the Bank's country program with Mexico. The evaluation period was marked by the introduction of wide-ranging structural reforms, the need for reforms was driven by long-standing and worsening problems in numerous areas. This Country program Evaluation is also the first for Mexico that covers operations of the former Inter-American Development Corporation (IIC), because OVEs oversight mandate has been extended to IIC (now IDB Invest) since the 2016 consolidation of IDBGs non-sovereign guaranteed windows (AG-9/15).

2020 IDB Climate Finance
Under the current IDBG Corporate Results Framework (CRF) 2020-2023 (https://crf.iadb.org/en), the IDB committed to reach 30% of the total amount approved (including all lending operations) of climate finance during this period. In 2020, the IDB Group - composed of the IDB, IDB Lab (formerly the Multilateral Investment Fund) and IDB Invest - approved US$3.9 billion in climate finance as per the MDB climate finance tracking methodology. This resource is aimed at development activities carried out by the public and private sectors that reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and thus mitigate climate change, and/or that reduce vulnerability to climate change and contribute to an adaptation process. This amount represented 19.5% of the IDB Groups total approved amount for 2020. The IDB only climate finance in 2020 was 15%, equivalent to US$ 2 billion. If the COVID-19 related investments are excluded, the IDB climate finance reached 30%. Changes in demand from countries to respond to the pandemic affected the overall climate finance results by shifting the priority to social and fiscal sectors and to projects that could provide faster liquidity.

2019 IDBG Climate Finance Data
At the IDB Groups Annual Meeting in 2016, the Board of Governors endorsed the goal to increase finance of climate change-related projects in the Latin American and Caribbean region to 30% of the IDBs and IICs combined total approvals by 2020, subject to demand from borrowing member countries and clients, and access to external sources of concessional finance. During 2019, the IDB Group - composed of the IDB, IDB Lab (formerly the Multilateral Investment Fund) and IDB Invest - approved approximately US$5 billion in climate finance, that is, for development activities carried out by the public and private sectors that reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and thus mitigate climate change, and/or that reduce vulnerability to climate change and contribute to an adaptation process. This amount represented 29% of the IDB Groups total approved amount for 2019.

Country Program Evaluation: Argentina 2016-2019
As part of its 2020 annual work plan, the Office of Evaluation and Oversight (OVE) has prepared the evaluation of the country program of the Inter-American Development Bank Group (IDBG) with Argentina during 2016-2019. According to the Bank's Protocol for Country Program Evaluations (CPEs) (RE-348-3), the main goal of this evaluation is “to provide information on Bank performance at the country level that is credible and useful, and that enables the incorporation of lessons and recommendations that can be used to improve the development effectiveness of the Bank's overall strategy and program of country assistance.” CPEs are prepared to inform the process of elaborating a new Country Strategy (CS) and evaluate the Bank's assistance to the country, in particular the financial and non-financial relevance of the CS and country program and the implementation, effectiveness, efficiency, and sustainability of the program. This is the fourth independent evaluation of the Bank's country program with Argentina and was prepared between June 2019 and April 2020. The three prior CPEs covered periods of economic crisis and subsequent recovery. The first (RE-299) spanned 1990-2002, analyzing the Bank's support before and after the 2001/2002 crisis; the second (RE-361) covered the Bank's support during the post-crisis economic recovery of 2003-2008; and the third (RE-491-1) covered 2009-2015, a period marked by falling commodity prices and increasing fiscal difficulties in Argentina. During this evaluation period (2016-2019) the Government worked to create conditions for more private investment in a difficult macroeconomic and fiscal context, as an economic and currency crisis returned to Argentina in 2018/2019. This CPE is the first for Argentina to also cover IDB Invest (formerly known as the Inter-American Development Corporation) since OVE's oversight mandate was expanded following the 2016 consolidation of IDBG's non-sovereign-guaranteed (NSG) windows (AG-9/15).
