Sector de servicios una oportunidad para la diversificación productiva
La región andina se enfrenta no solo al desafío imperante de la descarbonización global, sino también a la problemática de la baja productividad en las micro y pequeñas empresas, lo cual impacta de manera significativa en la economía. Esta realidad subraya la necesidad urgente de superar las barreras de calidad para integrarse en cadenas de valores modernas. En este contexto, el sector de servicios, como principal empleador en la región, se revela como una pieza clave en la reconfiguración económica. La diversificación económica y el aumento de la productividad agregada se presentan como imperativos ineludibles. Las oportunidades para incrementar las exportaciones de servicios basados en conocimiento adquieren mayor relevancia, consolidando a la región andina como un actor significativo en el mercado internacional. En este proceso, el sector turístico emerge como un componente esencial para el desarrollo sostenible, aprovechando la rica biodiversidad y la geografía única de la región. Este potencial no solo promete un aumento en la atracción de visitantes, sino también una fuente vital de ingresos. A su vez, el auge de los servicios basados en plataformas digitales presenta nuevas oportunidades, aunque el desafío del aseguramiento social plantea una cuestión crucial en la transición hacia una economía más digitalizada y conectada. En resumen, la descarbonización global y la baja productividad en las micro y pequeñas empresas se perfilan como desafíos centrales para la economía de la región andina. Superar estas barreras se torna esencial para la consecución de un desarrollo económico sostenible y resistente, donde el sector de servicios desempeña un papel fundamental en la transformación y modernización de la región.

Digitalización de las micro y pequeñas empresas y reducción de la desigualdad regional en México
A partir de tabulados de los Censos Económicos de 2014 y 2019 de México, este trabajo analiza la desigualdad entre unidades económicas en el acceso a las TIC y su relación con características de las empresas relacionadas al mercado laboral. En primer lugar, el estudio encuentra una fuerte correlación positiva entre la adopción de TIC y el tamaño de las unidades económicas; más aún, si bien las diferencias sectoriales en adopción de TIC son pequeñas entre las empresas medianas y grandes, éstas son mucho más marcadas entre las unidades económicas de hasta diez empleados. En cuanto a la dimensión regional, existe una elevada desigualdad entre entidades federativas en la adopción de TIC que se relaciona con la mayor y creciente densidad de empresas medianas y grandes en los estados del norte, y de micro y pequeñas empresas (MyPE) en los estados del sur-sureste. Por último, y contrario a la evidencia para países desarrollados, tanto entre los sectores económicos como entre las entidades federativas los datos muestran una correlación positiva del acceso de empresas a las TIC con la productividad laboral, calidad del empleo, salarios y participación del trabajo en el valor agregado. Desde el punto de vista de la política pública, los resultados sugieren que reducir la brecha digital entre las empresas mexicanas con foco en las MyPE, no sólo tendría impactos positivos en productividad sino también en la reducción de las desigualdades en el mercado laboral.

Investing in Sustainable Infrastructure in Latin America: Instruments, Strategies and Partnerships for Institutional Investors Mobilization
Despite the significant challenges in mobilizing investors resources towards sustainable infrasctrure investments in Latin America and the Carribbean, an investment opportunity in low carbon and resilient assets exists and represents a critical step towards a sustainable economic recovery from the financial duress due to the COVID-19 pandemic and its impacts on health and economic systems of the region. This papers contribuition is two-fold: it attempts to estimate and size an ideal sustainable investable pipeline accross the region generated by several policies promoting public-private-partnerships (PPP) in the transport and energy sectors. Then it identifies and details different investment strategies and financial instruments available to institutional investors to invest in the region while mitigating the risks they perceived and hinder the mobilization of their resources. Such strategies discussed in the paper include: joint ventures with local counterparties, direct and active investments in the national markets, and/or access to markets via partnerships with development financial institutions.

Financial Development, Growth, and Inequality: The Role of Institutions in Latin America and the Caribbean
This publication explores the relationships between institutions, financial development, and income inequality. It assesses the extent of reforms that can promote financial development and argues that institutional improvements capable of increasing financial development can simultaneously mitigate income inequality. This work, focusing on the Latin American and Caribbean region, uses a broad set of measures of financial development, financial institutions, and capital markets. It employs a comprehensive set of inequality indicators and income definitions, as well an econometric model of the financial possibility frontier, to demonstrate that institutions contributing to financial development also help reduce income inequality.

Analysis of External Climate Finance Access and Implementation: CIF, FCPF, GCF and GEF Projects and Programs by the Inter-American Development Bank
In response to the Paris Agreement and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), the IDB Group Board of Governors endorsed the target of increasing climate-related financing in Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC) from 15% in 2015 to 30% of the IDB Groups combined total approvals by 2020. Currently, the IDB Group is on track to meet this commitment, as in 2018, it financed nearly US$5 billion in climate-change-related activities benefiting LAC, which accounted for 27% of total IDB Groups annual approvals. In 2019, the overall volume and proportion of climate finance in new IDBG approvals have increased to 29%. As the IDB continues to strive towards this goal by using its funds to ramp-up climate action, it also acknowledges that tackling climate change is an objective shared with the rest of the international community. For the past ten years, strategic partnerships have been forged with external sources of finance that are also looking to invest in low-carbon and climate-resilient development. Doing this has contributed to the Banks objective of mobilizing additional resources for climate action while also strengthening its position as a leading partner to accelerate climate innovation in many fields. From climate-smart technologies and resilient infrastructure to institutional reform and financial mechanisms, IDB's use of external sources of finance is helping countries in LAC advance toward meeting their international climate change commitments. This report collects a series of insights and lessons learned by the IDB in the preparation and implementation of projects with climate finance from four external sources: the Climate Investment Funds (CIF), the Forest Carbon Partnership Facility (FCPF), the Green Climate Fund (GCF) and the Global Environment Facility (GEF). It includes a systematic revision of their design and their progress on delivery, an assessment of broader impacts (scale-up, replication, and contributions to transformational change/paradigm shift), and a set of recommendations to optimize the access and use of these funds in future rounds of climate investment. The insights and lessons learned collected in this publication can inform the design of short and medium-term actions that support “green recovery” through the mobilization of investments that promote decarbonization.
