Video and Sound Engineering Skills Training Program
This project involves the design and piloting of a skills training program in video and sound engineering to complement and build on SERVOL's existing technical and life skills training programs for at risk youth in Trinidad and Tobago's marginalised communities. The objective is expand availability of certified technical /skilled workers for the ICT sector in Trinidad and Tobago, specifically in the areas of multimedia content production. The project also seeks to ensure the continued relevance of SERVOL's skills training programs through the introduction of certified training courses that are in demand by industry and of interest to SERVOL's targeted beneficiaries ¿ at risk youth

This project supports private sector development, which is identified as a priority in the Bank's current Country Strategy Paper for Trinidad and Tobago. The skills development program also supports "Use of ICT" and "Skills standards" which are both defined as priority areas for the MIF Delegation of Authority program (MIF/GN-62-5). In addition the project directly contributes to "Labour and Youth Employment", a strategic area of focus defined by COF/CTT in development of a plan for implementation of the MIF Delegation of Authority program in Trinidad and Tobago. The project also complements the "At Risk Community and Youth Development" component of the Citizen Security program (TTL1003) that is currently in development.

La industria libre de carbono está más cerca de lo que creemos
El acero, el cemento, los productos químicos, el vidrio o los ladrillos forman la realidad física de nuestra civilización. Los utilizamos para construir casas, escuelas, hospitales, oficinas, carreteras e incluso para crear estructuras que nos ayuden a evitar o reducir el impacto de los desastres naturales. Pero ¿podemos seguir confiando en estos materiales cuando su producción provoca el 34% de las emisiones mundiales de CO2? La respuesta es sí. Según un reciente informe del IDDRI y el BID, es posible transformar la industria.

Taxation when Markets are not Competitive: Evidence from a Loan Tax
We study the interaction of market structure and tax-and-subsidy strategies utilizing pass-through estimates from the unexpected introduction of a loan tax in Ecuador, a quantitative model, and a comprehensive commercial-loan dataset. Our model generalizes bank competition theories, including Bertrand-Nash competition, credit rationing, and joint-maximization. While we find the loan tax is distortionary, neglecting the possibility of non-competitive lending inflates estimated tax deadweight loss by 80% because non-competitive banks internalize some of the burden. Conversely, subsidies are less effective in non-competitive settings. If competition were stronger, tax revenue would be 10% lower. The findings suggest that policymakers should consider market structure in tax-and-subsidy strategies.

The Promises of Digital Bank Accounts for Low-income Individuals
The push for adopting digital modes of payment rests on three promises: increased efficiency of transactions, increased financial inclusion, and improvements in the financial well-being of low-income individuals. We experimentally test the extent to which these promises are fulfilled. We exploit the random assignment into an intervention to encourage direct deposits of recurrent government benefits into digital bank accounts in Colombia. Switching from cash to direct deposits reduces disbursement errors and increases access to benefits among eligible beneficiaries. It also increases the ownership of bank accounts, the demand for formal loans, and loan take-up among individuals without a financial history. However, we do not find evidence of improvements in financial well-being across any of our metrics.
