Investing in Sustainable Infrastructure in Latin America: Instruments, Strategies and Partnerships for Institutional Investors Mobilization
Despite the significant challenges in mobilizing investors resources towards sustainable infrasctrure investments in Latin America and the Carribbean, an investment opportunity in low carbon and resilient assets exists and represents a critical step towards a sustainable economic recovery from the financial duress due to the COVID-19 pandemic and its impacts on health and economic systems of the region. This papers contribuition is two-fold: it attempts to estimate and size an ideal sustainable investable pipeline accross the region generated by several policies promoting public-private-partnerships (PPP) in the transport and energy sectors. Then it identifies and details different investment strategies and financial instruments available to institutional investors to invest in the region while mitigating the risks they perceived and hinder the mobilization of their resources. Such strategies discussed in the paper include: joint ventures with local counterparties, direct and active investments in the national markets, and/or access to markets via partnerships with development financial institutions.

Analysis of External Climate Finance Access and Implementation: CIF, FCPF, GCF and GEF Projects and Programs by the Inter-American Development Bank
In response to the Paris Agreement and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), the IDB Group Board of Governors endorsed the target of increasing climate-related financing in Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC) from 15% in 2015 to 30% of the IDB Groups combined total approvals by 2020. Currently, the IDB Group is on track to meet this commitment, as in 2018, it financed nearly US$5 billion in climate-change-related activities benefiting LAC, which accounted for 27% of total IDB Groups annual approvals. In 2019, the overall volume and proportion of climate finance in new IDBG approvals have increased to 29%. As the IDB continues to strive towards this goal by using its funds to ramp-up climate action, it also acknowledges that tackling climate change is an objective shared with the rest of the international community. For the past ten years, strategic partnerships have been forged with external sources of finance that are also looking to invest in low-carbon and climate-resilient development. Doing this has contributed to the Banks objective of mobilizing additional resources for climate action while also strengthening its position as a leading partner to accelerate climate innovation in many fields. From climate-smart technologies and resilient infrastructure to institutional reform and financial mechanisms, IDB's use of external sources of finance is helping countries in LAC advance toward meeting their international climate change commitments. This report collects a series of insights and lessons learned by the IDB in the preparation and implementation of projects with climate finance from four external sources: the Climate Investment Funds (CIF), the Forest Carbon Partnership Facility (FCPF), the Green Climate Fund (GCF) and the Global Environment Facility (GEF). It includes a systematic revision of their design and their progress on delivery, an assessment of broader impacts (scale-up, replication, and contributions to transformational change/paradigm shift), and a set of recommendations to optimize the access and use of these funds in future rounds of climate investment. The insights and lessons learned collected in this publication can inform the design of short and medium-term actions that support “green recovery” through the mobilization of investments that promote decarbonization.

Design and Performance of Mining and Petroleum Fiscal Regimes in Latin America and the Caribbean: Survey of Current Practices, Lessons Learned and Best Practices
This report reviews the taxation of oil, gas, and mining sectors by the governments of the major Latin American and Caribbean producing countries. It finds the fiscal regimes in place to be complex and widely divergent in terms of form and structure. The report describes how most of the existing regimes tend to unintentionally discourage investment, limit production, and create deadweight losses that impede the governments ability to realize the full value and benefits of their resource endowments. These conclusions are based on an analysis of deadweight losses using a model of resource exploration and development that recognizes and incorporates investors likely reactions to various fiscal provisions in the attempt to maximize private operator value via the minimization of the burden of taxation. This behavioral approach to the investors reaction to taxes is designed to identify potential distortions to the plan of exploitationdistortions that may to some extent impair benefits (revenues, jobs, production) that the government would hope to capture through the fiscal regime.

Colaboración y alianzas para la financiación de la lucha contra el cambio climático
Durante más de diez años, el BID ha forjado alianzas estratégicas con fuentes externas de financiación para invertir en un desarrollo bajo en carbono y resiliente al clima. En 2022, el Directorio del BID aprobó más de 500 millones de dólares de fondos externos procedentes de los Climate Investment Funds (CIF, por sus siglas en inglés), el Fondo Verde para el Clima (GCF, por sus siglas en inglés) y el NDC Pipeline Accelerator (ACL). Esta cifra puede parecer bastante significativa, sin embargo, la Agencia Internacional de la Energía establece que 4 billones de dólares anuales será el coste para llegar a cero emisiones netas en 2050.

Soluciones basadas en la naturaleza en América Latina y el Caribe: apoyo del Banco Interamericano de Desarrollo
Los gobiernos de América Latina y el Caribe se enfrentan al reto de ampliar y mantener las infraestructuras para atender a sus poblaciones, especialmente a medida que el cambio climático y la degradación de los ecosistemas ponen en peligro a las comunidades y a los activos de infraestructuras de toda la región. Para ayudar a afrontar estos retos, el Banco Interamericano de Desarrollo (BID) aspira incrementar su apoyo a las soluciones basadas en la naturaleza (SBN) de acuerdo con el Plan de Acción de Sostenibilidad Ambiental y Social 2020 del banco. Este resumen sirve para dos funciones. En primer lugar, se describe el creciente interés del BID en las SBN y ofrece un recorrido por las principales ofertas del BID en materia de apoyo a proyectos e inversiones en SBN. En segundo lugar, sirve como línea base de las actividades de BID en relación a SBN, a partir de la cual el banco y sus socios pueden seguir avanzando. En adelante, el BID intensificará su apoyo a los clientes para que incorporen las consideraciones de las SBN y el análisis de oportunidades en los acuerdos con los países y en todas las etapas de preparación de los proyectos, desde la identificación de la inversión hasta su ejecución.
