Se buscan empleos de calidad: políticas activas y pasivas de empleo en Colombia. Informe para la Misión de Empleo
Colombia sobresale a nivel internacional por sus grandes dificultades para generar empleos de calidad. Mitigar los riesgos asociados a la pérdida de empleo, a los que tantos ciudadanos están expuestos, difícilmente se puede hacer sin apoyo del Gobierno. En este documento se analiza la oferta en Colombia de dos tipos de políticas públicas: las políticas activas y pasivas. Se muestra que, a pesar de los esfuerzos que ha hecho Colombia para articular las políticas activas y pasivas alrededor de un sistema integrado y de los recursos que ha invertido, la oferta está fragmentada en programas sin una visión unificada y con resultados débiles en muchas dimensiones. La mayor parte de los trabajadores colombianos recibe una baja o nula protección durante los periodos de desempleo o cesantía. Se trata de un problema estructural y antiguo cuyas consecuencias saltaron a la vista de manera dramática ante la crisis que desencadenó la pandemia. Fortalecer las políticas activas y pasivas requiere de consensos políticos importantes, cambios regulatorios e inversiones para el fortalecimiento institucional. El documento presenta una serie de lineamientos de reforma, para mejorar el diseño e implementación de las políticas activas y pasivas y fortalecer la institucionalidad en la que operan. También se discute su complementariedad con la política social y la regulación laboral. Este documento fue escrito en el marco de la Misión de Empleo que convocó el Gobierno de Colombia en el año 2020.

Beyond Leakages: Quantifying the Effects of Corruption on the Water and Sanitation Sector in Latin America and the Caribbean
The importance of transparency and governance as determinants of efficiency, effectiveness, and quality of service undoubtedly occupy a key place among the most relevant lessons learned from the reforms implemented in the Water and Sanitation sector (W&S) in Latin America and the Caribbean in the last two decades. In order to support data-driven policy reform aimed at increasing efficiency in public investments, the present analysis focuses on estimating direct financial costs in terms of contract award prices and direct social costs in terms of project delivery quality (measured as frequency of delays and cancellations). The following questions are explored: i) What are the scale and types of corruption affecting W&S services?; ii) What is the effect of corruption in terms of tender completion?; iii) What is the financial impact of corruption for W&S services providers, such as high cost of infrastructure development? Considering limitations of data and measurement, the analysis suggests that a decisive policy reform reducing risks by about two-thirds (aggressive scenario) could result in substantial savings across the sector: 7-16% of prices for standardized (e.g. chairs) as well as unique goods (e.g. pipes), and 10-19% lower incidence of cancellations and delays. While these may sound modest in percentage terms, total savings from effective anticorruption reforms are substantial, given the high value of total spending in the sector.
