La presión fiscal equivalente en América Latina y el Caribe (1990-2021): actualización y estado de situación en la salida de la pandemia de COVID-19: Database
Esta es la tercera actualización de la base de datos de Presión Fiscal Equivalente (PFE) de América Latina y el Caribe (ALC) para el período 1990-2018 basada en la metodología BID-CIAT. La PFE mide de una manera más precisa la totalidad de los recursos recaudados en la región y tiene cuatro componentes: i) los ingresos impositivos tradicionales del gobierno general, incluidos aquellos de los gobiernos subnacionales; ii) las contribuciones públicas a la seguridad social, iii) los aportes obligatorios a regímenes privados de seguridad social; y iv) los ingresos no tributarios provenientes de la explotación de recursos naturales. De acuerdo con la tendencia creciente desde la década de los noventa, la PFE promedio para 25 países aumentó más de 6 puntos porcentuales del producto interno bruto (PIB), pasando del 17,3% al 23,6% entre 1990 y 2021. La dinámica de mediano plazo es explicada mayormente por los ingresos impositivos, que crecieron desde el 13,5% hasta el 18,0% del PIB en dicho período. Individualmente existe una alta heterogeneidad en cuanto a la evolución y al nivel de los ingresos tributarios y la PFE.

Resilience Starts At Home: How can Barbadians take the fight to climate change?
We are often reminded that climate change is not a phenomenon to be taken lightly. However, too often we only come to grips with this important issue when an event has severely wounded an island-neighbor for the fear that our island may be the next to suffer similar consequences. And there is no telling just

The Open Government Ecosystem in the City of Buenos Aires: A Model for Change
The City of Buenos Aires (CABA) is one of the pioneer cities in the Latin America and the Caribbean region in terms of open government, and forms part of the Subnational Government Pilot Program of the Open Government Partnership. For several years, the city developed diverse initiatives using a participative and innovative management model until, in 2017, the Open Government Ecosystem (www.buenosaires.gob.ar/gobiernoabierto) was established. This initiative combines and enhances all the policies based on open government principles. This paper analyzes CABA’s open government management model both at the center of government and in its organizational culture, as well as its external aspects, such as service provision and citizen relations. The case study places emphasis on two initiatives: Government Commitments and BA Public Works (Compromisos de Gobierno and BA Obras). Government Commitments is a program that introduces more than 50 management goals with measurable targets and that discloses information to enable citizen monitoring. Moreover, the CABA Chief of Government periodically gives an account of the progress on its commitments. For its part, BA Public Works is the first website in the region that openly reports all public works in a single city, detailing when the public works begin and end, how much they cost, and who executes them, as well as posting photographs and videos to monitor progress. The legal documentation relative to the procurement process for each public work can also be accessed. The management model developed in the city is the result of collaborative work among different government ministries. Likewise, the model incorporated participation by citizens and civil society organizations, whereby it has boosted trust in government and accountability. Based on these concrete achievements, CABA’s Open Government Ecosystem still faces the challenge of improving practices to bridge the gap in the feedback loop between ecosystem users and the government.
