Costos y beneficios de lograr la carbono-neutralidad en América Latina y el Caribe
¿Son el desarrollo y la descarbonización objetivos contradictorios o complementarios? En este informe, exploramos cómo América Latina y el Caribe pueden mejorar los resultados socioeconómicos y de desarrollo y al mismo tiempo alcanzar cero emisiones netas de gases de efecto invernadero para 2050. Específicamente, presentamos SiSePuede, un conjunto de herramientas de modelado de descarbonización de código abierto que evalúa los costos, beneficios y reducciones de emisiones en toda la economía. Descubrimos que maximizar las acciones podría lograr emisiones netas cero en la región antes de 2050 y 2,7 billones (millones de millones) de dólares netos en beneficios en comparación con el desarrollo más tradicional. Los beneficios incluyen enormes ahorros en costos de combustible; costos evitados por la reducción de la contaminación del aire, la congestión y los accidentes automovilísticos; y el valor de los servicios ecosistémicos de los bosques. Aunque hay muchos caminos hacia las emisiones netas cero, tres acciones son fundamentales: producir electricidad con energías renovables, electrificar el transporte y proteger y restaurar los bosques deteniendo la deforestación y cambiando los patrones de producción de alimentos. Las estrategias que abarcan a toda la economía y que implementan estas acciones a escala pueden reducir drásticamente las emisiones y generar enormes beneficios para la región, incluso en medio de profundas incertidumbres, con una mediana de 1 billón de dólares en beneficios netos en todos los escenarios. Estos beneficios se distribuyen de manera desigual entre sectores y actores y a lo largo del tiempo, por lo que lograrlos y garantizar una transición justa hacia cero emisiones netas requiere que los gobiernos superen importantes barreras financieras, regulatorias, de infraestructura y de otro tipo. Cada país debe adaptar su propia estrategia para abordar los objetivos de desarrollo y emisiones en función de las prioridades, capacidades, recursos y capacidad técnica locales. SiSePuede proporciona una base analítica sólida para respaldar estos esfuerzos.

Domestic Violence Reporting during the COVID-19 Pandemic: Evidence from Latin America
This article examines changes in the frequency and characteristics of domestic violence reports after the start of the pandemic and the imposition of mobility restrictions in six Latin American countries. The study uses three types of data sources: calls to domestic violence hotlines (for the City of Buenos Aires in Argentina, Colombia, and Peru); calls to emergency lines (for Ecuador, Lima in Peru, and Costa Rica); and police/legal complaints (for Colombia, Ecuador, and Uruguay). Data through June 2020 shows that the pandemic's impact on domestic violence reports varied significantly across countries, periods, types of violence, and reporting channels. Calls to domestic violence hotlines soared, but calls to emergency lines and police complaints fell (especially in the first weeks of the pandemic). Significantly distinct patterns are observed between reports of psychological and physical violence, and non-cohabitant and cohabitant violence. These patterns are consistent with the pandemic changing the relative incidence of different types of violence and altering the perceived costs of reporting them through alternative channels. Increases in calls to domestic violence hotlines suggest that this channel was best suited to respond to victims' needs during the pandemic. In turn, the drop in legal complaints and calls to comprehensive emergency lines are consistent with an increase in the perceived (relative) cost of using these channels. The findings reveal how the pandemic altered domestic violence victims' demand for institutional help and highlight the relevance of domestic violence hotlines as an accessible and valuable service.

Agricultural Productivity in El Salvador: A Preliminary Analysis
The need to enhance food security while reducing poverty along with the growing threat imposed by climate change clearly reveal that it is imperative to accelerate agricultural productivity growth. This paper estimates micro-level production models to identify the major factors that have contributed to productivity growth in El Salvador, including irrigation, purchased inputs, mechanization, technical assistance, and farm size, among others. The econometric framework adopted in this investigation is grounded on recent panel data stochastic production frontier methodologies. The results obtained from the estimation of these models are used to calculate Total Factor Productivity (TFP) change and to decompose such change into different factors, including technological progress, technical efficiency (TE), and economies of scale. The findings imply that efforts are needed to improve productivity in both technological progress and technical efficiency where the latter is a measurement of managerial performance. This in turn indicates that resources should be devoted to promoting the adoption and diffusion of improved technologies while enhancing managerial capabilities through agricultural extension.

Lending Instruments Report
The 2019-2020 Work Program of the Office of Evaluation and Oversight (OVE) included an assessment of the financial instruments of the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB). The objective of this assessment was to evaluate the extent to which the IDBs set of financial (and non-financial) instruments has been aligned wit hand effective in responding to the (changing) needs of clients. This first report is a knowledge product focused on sovereign-guaranteed (SG) lending instruments and modalities that takes stock of the findings of previous evaluations carried out by OVE. The purpose of the report is threefold: to provide summary information, based on OVEs past work, mainly for new members of the IDBs Board of Directors; to serve as a technical input for Board and Management discussions; and to identify information and knowledge gaps to inform OVEs upcoming work on financial instruments.

Social Protection and Informality in Latin America during the COVID-19 Pandemic
Latin American governments swiftly implemented income assistance programs to sustain families' livelihoods during COVID-19 stay-at-home orders. This paper analyzes the potential coverage and generosity of these measures and assesses the suitability of current safety nets to deal with unexpected negative income shocks in 10 Latin American countries. The expansion of pre-existing programs (most notably conditional cash transfers and non-contributory pensions) during the COVID-19 crisis was generally insufficient to compensate for the inability to work among the poorest segments of the population. When COVID-19 ad hoc programs are analyzed, the coverage and replacement rates of regular labor income among households in the first quintile of the country's labor income distribution increase substantially. Yet, these programs present substantial coverage challenges among families composed of fundamentally informal workers who are non-poor, but are at a high risk of poverty. These results highlight the limitations of the fragmented nature of social protection systems in the region.

La promesa de la agricultura moderna para un crecimiento más rápido e inclusivo 
El paso de la agricultura a la industria manufacturera y a otros sectores de alta productividad se consideró durante mucho tiempo como el verdadero camino hacia la transformación estructural y el desarrollo. Por el contrario, la agricultura se consideraba un sector tecnológicamente atrasado, con una innovación mínima y poca capacidad para hacer crecer el ingreso

The Promise of Modern Agriculture for Faster and More Inclusive Growth
The path from agriculture to manufacturing and other high-productivity sectors was long considered the true way to structural transformation and development. By contrast, agriculture was viewed as a technologically backwards sector, with minimal innovation and little capacity to grow national income. That view, however, no longer holds. While there is still plenty of subsistence agriculture
