Environmental and Social Performance Standard 5 on Land Acquisition and Involuntary Resettlement
The environmental and social context of the Latin American and Caribbean region has evolved since the Inter-American Development Bank’s (IDB) safeguard policies were developed more than 15 years ago. The Environmental and Social Policy Framework modernizes many of the requirements of those safeguards policies into a comprehensive and consolidated framework that responds better to the environmental and social challenges facing our countries: social inequality, climate change, and the depletion of natural capital. In turn, the new Framework emerges as an opportunity to improve, update, and harmonize environmental and social standards within the IDB group and with other multilateral organizations, so that the borrower must always abide by similar requirements.

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.

Environmental and social performance standard 9: gender equality
The environmental and social context of the Latin American and Caribbean region has evolved since the Inter-American Development Bank’s (IDB) safeguard policies were developed more than 15 years ago. The Environmental and Social Policy Framework modernizes many of the requirements of those safeguards policies into a comprehensive and consolidated framework that responds better to the environmental and social challenges facing our countries: social inequality, climate change, and the depletion of natural capital. In turn, the new Framework emerges as an opportunity to improve, update, and harmonize environmental and social standards within the IDB group and with other multilateral organizations, so that the borrower must always abide by similar requirements. The IDB's Environmental and Social Performance Standard 9 recognizes that gender equality has intrinsic value. Gender equality is not only an issue of justice and human rights but also a driver of sustainable development.

MICI Reflections: Access to Remedy and Dispute Resolution: Contributions to the Conversation Based on MICI's Experience
The notion of remedy has gained importance and become a central issue on the international development agenda, despite accountability mechanisms and financial institutions have been subject to continued criticism in terms of their ability to provide effective remedy for communities claiming to be affected by development projects. This note aims to explore the role of alternative dispute resolution in access to remedy, and to specifically examine the contributions that MICIs Consultation Phase has made in providing solutions to communities that believe they have been adversely affected by IDB Group-financed development projects between 2017 and 2022.
