MDB Infrastructure Cooperation Platform: A Common Set of Aligned Sustainable Infrastructure Indicators (SII)
The COVID19 pandemic has exacerbated the urgency to deliver a set of Sustainable Infrastructure Indicators to ensure clear market guidance is provided to governments, banks and investors to direct more investment to sustainable infrastructure projects that support a sustainable global economic recovery. As part of the work underway by the MDB ICP Sustainable Infrastructure Workstream, this report shows that despite numerous existing sustainable infrastructure tools, frameworks, and indicators, none have been jointly developed by all MDBs. The report presents 16 key sustainable infrastructure indicators which, while not an exhaustive list, do provide the common denominators of three mapped sustainable infrastructure frameworks and two initiatives of MDBs. This work does not attempt to standardize internal MDB policies or processes but rather distill the essence of infrastructure sustainability only from the referenced frameworks. It represents a first step towards providing a common language for dialogue around sustainable infrastructure and to ensure consistency across the project cycle. The indicators cover topics including environmental sustainability, climate change and resilience, social inclusion, institutional governance, employment and economic and social return. The report also provides insights into how reaching an aligned set of sustainable infrastructure indicators can mobilize public and private investment and how public and private players can incorporate/monitor them at various stages of the asset lifecycle. Lastly, it discusses the extent to which each indicator aligns with the SDGs.

Research Insights: How Can Macro-Prudential Policy Control the Impact of Cross-Border Bank Flows on Emerging Market Economies?
Advanced economies (AEs) transmit economic crisis to Emerging Market Economies (EMEs) through cross-border bank flows, impacting their output, credit, and assets prices. Empirical evidence suggests that the transmission of the crisis from AEs to EMEs is higher in the absence of macro-prudential policy. A macro-prudential policy in the form of a levy on EMEs banks, when credit grows faster than deposits, reduces the propagation of AEs crisis to EMEs: the consumption drop is 12 percent lower, and the reaction of the labor market smoother, so consumers are better off with the policy than without it.

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.
