Training Services for Street Youth
The general goals of the project are: (a) to demonstrate cost-effective and replicable training and services programs by the private sector for street youth which are oriented to the self-sufficiency and productive potential of the youth; (b) to encourage private sector participation in the financing and job placement of this training program; and (c) to strengthen the technical and institutional capacity of the Foundation in order to increase the provision of services to the street youth of Mexico City through its "El Caracol" Program. The specific objective of the project is to design a multi-tiered program of street youth activities, which includes outreach activities, training of basic and higher technical skills, and housing alternatives. The conceptual framework of the program's curricula is similar to that of Jobs Corps, an intensive technical skills program offered to disadvantaged youth in several developed and developing countries. The project will be implemented as a 24-month pilot initiative and would consist of start-up financing to the Foundation to expand its Caracol Training Center program. The activities will consist of three main components: (a) basic skills training; (b) more advanced academic and vocational skills training; and (c); technical and institutional strengthening. At its completion, it is estimated that the program would reach an estimated 1,000 youth per year, during its pilot phase and an estimated 1,500 per year thereafter, considering an eventual expansion of the Center and its services, once the pilot phase is concluded.

Climate Change, Migration and the Urban Housing and Labor Markets
Between 1991 and 2010, millions of Brazilians migrated from rural to urban areas, many of them because of the effect of increasing drought brought on by climate change. This migration has had effects not only on wages and employment, but also on the closely-related urban housing market. We decided to examine the phenomena in a

Population and Housing Censuses Indicators of Latin America and the Caribbean
The Population and Housing Censuses database contains the censuses harmonized in such a way as to provide comparable census information over time and across countries. The variables in these databases are constructed under a common approach and structure, with standardized names, definitions, and disaggregations, and stored in a single file for each country. Currently, the harmonization of Population and Housing Censuses includes databases for 22 countries. The indicators are categorized into seven themes: demographics, education, labor market, housing, income, migration, and diversity. When possible, we add multiple disaggregations for indicators. The available disaggregations are ethnicity, gender, age, education level, and area of geographic residence. The management and harmonization of this database are provided by the Social Sector (SCL) of the Vice Presidency of Knowledge and Sectors to strengthen the analytical content of projects and studies.
