Evaluación del Programa de País: Argentina 2016-2019
En el marco de su plan anual de trabajo 2020, la Oficina de Evaluación y Supervisión (OVE) ha preparado la evaluación del programa de país del Grupo del Banco Interamericano de Desarrollo (Grupo BID) con Argentina durante los años 2016 a 2019. De acuerdo con el protocolo del Banco para las evaluaciones de los programas de país (CPE, por sus siglas en inglés) (RE-348-3), el objetivo principal de esta evaluación es “proporcionar información sobre el desempeño del Banco en el país que sea creíble y útil, y que facilite la incorporación de lecciones y recomendaciones que puedan emplearse para mejorar la efectividad en el desarrollo de la estrategia general del Banco y su programa de asistencia al país”. Las CPE se preparan para informar el proceso de elaboración de una nueva Estrategia del Banco con el País (EBP) y analizan la asistencia brindada por el Banco al país, en particular la relevancia financiera y no financiera de la EBP y del programa, así como la ejecución, efectividad, eficiencia y sostenibilidad del programa. Esta es la cuarta evaluación independiente del programa de país del Banco con Argentina y fue preparada entre junio de 2019 y abril de 2020. Las tres evaluaciones anteriores cubrieron períodos de crisis económica y de posterior recuperación. La primera (RE-299) abarcó el período 1990-2002 y analizó el apoyo del Banco antes y después de la crisis de 2001/2002; la segunda (RE-361) cubrió el apoyo del Banco durante la recuperación económica de 2003-2008, posterior a la crisis; y la tercera (RE-491-1) cubrió el período 2009-2015 que estuvo marcado por la caída en los precios de los productos básicos y crecientes dificultades fiscales en la Argentina. Durante el período cubierto por la presente evaluación (2016-2019) el Gobierno trabajó en crear condiciones para una mayor inversión privada en un contexto macroeconómico y fiscal difícil, dada la crisis económica y monetaria que volvió a la Argentina en 2018/2019. Esta evaluación es la primera en el caso argentino que también cubre a BID Invest (anteriormente conocida como Corporación Interamericana de Inversiones, o CII), ya que el mandato de supervisión de OVE se amplió desde la consolidación de las ventanillas sin garantía soberana (SGS) del Grupo BID en 2016 (AG-9/15).

Electrokit: Power Utility Toolkit-The Overview: Best Practices in Electric Power Distribution Companies in the Latin America and Caribbean Region
The Electrokit is an initiative created by the IDB to strengthen transformation and continuous improvement of electric utilities in the LAC region.

The aim of the toolkit is to provide power utilities, policy and decision-makers access to best practices, current trends, and expertise to: (i) identify challenges, develop a strategy and action plan for addressing them; and (ii) support utilities to be more sustainable, efficient, improve customer experience and accelerate innovation to stay ahead of the rapidly sector transformation. The Overview presents the main objectives of the toolkit, the structure of its areas and activities, and a guide on how companies could design an action plan.

The Importance of Financial Information in the Transport Sector: an Encouragement to New Outlooks and Perspectives in Light of the IDB's Vision 2025
Services in the transport sector in Latin America & the Caribbean are provided mainly by private enterprises of different sizes. However, as technical transport specialists, our knowledge and understanding of their management strategies and financial objectives remains limited. Most of the sectorial attention is rightly dedicated to the analysis of the effectiveness and efficiency of the products/services provided by companies, leaving out of the picture the focus on the “business” side of their structures and operations. Such lack of awareness can be linked to several reasons. But one of the motives that mostly hinder transport practitioners from further analyzing these aspects is the ability to speak the private companies “financial language”. Engineers, planners, and even economists are not always familiar with the instruments of financial analysis, management accounting or corporate finance; concepts that are at the core of this language. When it comes to financial analysis, sectors practitioners are mainly biased in thinking about PPPs issues and project finance. This is certainly not a fault per se! However, such a narrow focus can unquestionably represent an obstacle to the full comprehension of the phenomena and rationales that impact the sectors functioning

The Role of Agents and the Nature of Limitations in the Performance of Development Projects
Development practitioners aspire to improve lives, but achieving results is challenging. What prevents operations from achieving their objectives? Answering this question is critical to promote success. This Discussion Paper proposes to analyze operations first to identify if they faced limitations to effectiveness, then to identify which key stakeholders faced those limitations, and finally, whether such limitations were exogenous. Such an approach may strengthen accountability and learning. An analysis of 62 project completion reports evaluated in 2022 by the Inter-American Development Bank shows that success was contingent upon critical agents performance and the influence of exogenous factors. Four in 10 operations that failed had agents other than the executing agency face challenges. The same share of operations had agents face limitations derived from the project environment or third-party inputs beyond their control. Despite limitations, the proposed framework may provide insights for future work that promotes effectiveness.
