Exploitation Geothermal Resources for Electricity Generation Projects
1. Update the national strategy for the development of geothermal energy for power production. 2. Evaluate alternative schemes for the public/private sector financing of the different stages of geothermal projects, increasing the role of private initiative over time through the design of new types of private concessions. 3. Design a training and organization plan to establish a new private sector negotiation window within the National Electrification Institute (INDE). 4. Develop a Full Project Brief preparing the next phase of this initiative, which will include investments in the development of a series of geothermal fields (well drilling and scientific tests at the prefeasibility and feasibility levels) as well as the implementation of plans and start-up of the private sector geothermal window within INDE.

Aprovechando el poder de la geotermia en América Latina y el Caribe
La combinación actual de presiones geopolíticas y la necesidad urgente de abordar el cambio climático están dando forma a una oportunidad para que la energía geotérmica surja en toda la región como un camino hacia la transición energética hacia una energía base limpia, confiable y resistente. Sin embargo, la energía geotérmica no solo está disponible

Mecanismos públicos para viabilizar proyectos socioeconómicamente rentables y para garantizar su bancabilidad
Con el apoyo de Gobiernos e instituciones de investigación de América Latina y el Caribe, desde el BID desarrollamos en 2020 la Red de Análisis y Buenas Prácticas en Asociaciones Público-Privadas (Red APP), con el objetivo de mejorar el desarrollo de infraestructura en la región en términos de calidad, sostenibilidad, competitividad, y eficiencia. La Red APP nace con el objetivo de A) conectar las demandas públicas de conocimiento con la investigación aplicada desarrollada (en otras palabras, que los trabajos analíticos en materia de APPs respondan a lo que los desarrolladores de políticas y proyectos quieren saber sobre qué funciona y qué no); B) sistematizar la información: mediante la generación de información sistematizada para el análisis de proyectos, desde las decisiones de inversión hasta las de financiamiento; C) generar y coordinar la evidencia existente: mediante el desarrollo de trabajos analíticos a partir de información pública disponible generada por la red, así como conectar la investigación aplicada regional para potenciar sinergias en la generación de conocimiento. A comienzos de 2020, y partir de una Consulta Pública a Gobiernos de la región, se determinaron una serie de temas de interés comunes en el desarrollo de infraestructura mediante APP en torno a cinco grandes áreas: Regulación e Institucionalidad, Factibilidad y Estructuración de Proyectos Sostenibles, Financiamiento de Proyectos, Gestión de Riesgos y Monitoreo, y Evaluación, Desempeño e Impacto. El presente trabajo “Mecanismos Públicos para Viabilizar Proyectos Socioeconómicamente Rentables y para Garantizar su Bancabilidad” responde a dicha demanda y ha sido seleccionado a través de una convocatoria competitiva de propuestas.

Special Bulletin: NDC Invest: Supporting Transformational Climate Policy and Finance in Latin American and the Caribbean
NDC Invest was created as the one-stop-shop of the IDB Group providing technical and financial support for countries in Latin American and the Caribbean (LAC) in their efforts to achieve the climate objectives under the Paris Agreement, seeking to transition to a net-zero, resilient, and sustainable development pathway that improves the quality of life and prosperity in LAC. We have recently published a paper that describes three NDC Invest products to support Governments to tackle challenges and scale up action towards a climate-aligned and sustainable development path. In this Special Bulletin, we provide a snapshot of our thee products: i) the design of Long-Term Strategies (LTS) for net-zero emissions and resilience; ii) design of ambitious Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs), aligned to LTS; and iii) design of investment plans and finance strategies.

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.

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.

La deshidratación de mangos y la geotermia pueden ser dos conceptos que parecieran no tener mucho en común. Y si a esto le sumamos la incorporación de una perspectiva de género en una empresa que aprovecha el calor geotérmico, la ecuación se pone aún más interesante. Sin embargo, estos son elementos que definen la historia

Colaboración y alianzas para la financiación de la lucha contra el cambio climático
Durante más de diez años, el BID ha forjado alianzas estratégicas con fuentes externas de financiación para invertir en un desarrollo bajo en carbono y resiliente al clima. En 2022, el Directorio del BID aprobó más de 500 millones de dólares de fondos externos procedentes de los Climate Investment Funds (CIF, por sus siglas en inglés), el Fondo Verde para el Clima (GCF, por sus siglas en inglés) y el NDC Pipeline Accelerator (ACL). Esta cifra puede parecer bastante significativa, sin embargo, la Agencia Internacional de la Energía establece que 4 billones de dólares anuales será el coste para llegar a cero emisiones netas en 2050.
