From Wells to Wealth? Government Transfers and Human Capital
To study the causal impact of oil royalties on human capital, we exploit quasi-experimental variation arising from a law in Ecuador that transfers resources to municipalities regardless of their oil-producing status. We find that royalties increase the likelihood of students completing primary and secondary education. Students reaching high school are also more likely to pass and excel on the exit exam. Furthermore, schools are more likely to remain open, increase their size, and become more road-accessible. However, the likelihood of students pursuing higher education decreases as they face steeper opportunity costs when labor demand increases.

Análisis estratégico de la sostenibilidad territorial para proyectos de inversión: Guía de orientación
El desarrollo de los países en América Latina requiere de grandes proyectos de inversión que determinan el ritmo de crecimiento y ofrecen una plataforma para incrementar la competitividad y la inserción en cadenas globales de valor. Sin embargo, los mismos proyectos enfrentan crecientes conflictos socio-ambientales que dificultan o inhiben su desarrollo. Incluso cuando se superan los conflictos, estos importan un alto costo. Resolver esta contradicción requiere asegurar una adecuada inserción de los grandes proyectos en el territorio donde se emplazan. Esta inserción ya no solo requiere obtener los permisos administrativos que la ley exige, sino que también viabilizar su inserción en un territorio, compuesto no únicamente por los límites y características geográficas, sino que también por elementos sociales, culturales y económicos que se construyen en las percepciones y valoraciones de las personas que los habitan o que transitan por ellos. La presente guía tiene por finalidad configurar una metodología de relacionamiento temprano a través de un dispositivo de diálogo que permita una comunicación eficiente entre las comunidades y los titulares de proyectos. Describe dos instancias de participación ciudadana temprana distintas y complementarias para la actual institucionalidad ambiental. La primera corresponde a un procedimiento administrativo reglado que tenga por finalidad generar una instancia de interacción con los distintos órganos de la Administración del Estado con Competencias Ambientales (“OAECA”). La segunda, a un proceso de relacionamiento temprano con las comunidades del territorio en el que se emplazará el proyecto de inversión a través de mesas de diálogo y la realización de un Análisis Estratégico de Sostenibilidad Territorial (“AESOT”). Ambas instancias permitirían simultáneamente resolver tempranamente algunos elementos esenciales del proyecto que fijen el alcance de su posterior evaluación ambiental y definir los ámbitos de los posibles acuerdos de desarrollo territorial que podrían verificarse entre el titular y las comunidades.

New Products, New Markets: Dragon Fruit in Ecuador
Expanding incomes in Asian countries and changes in fresh-fruit value chains have created an important niche for producers of dragon fruit. Ecuadorean producers have responded and taken advantage of these evolving opportunities and market dynamism. By customizing their products to the specific demands of target markets and complying with the standards imposed by modern buyers, Ecuadorian exporters of dragon fruit demonstrate how challenges related to and opportunities in agri-food markets evolution can be met. This study documents the development of the dragon fruit market in Ecuador, with a special emphasis on the analysis of its value chain. The study additionally identifies and analyzes the main drivers of the success of the production and exports of the fruit and examines the main challenges and needs for improved public policies to promote sustainable growth of the sector. Findings are complemented with interviews conducted with the principal actors in the Ecuadorian dragon fruit industry, as well as a case study that involves several relatively recently formed dragon fruit-producing companies in the Amazon region of the country.

Strategies to Strengthen Ecuador's High-Value Cacao Value Chain
Since the early nineteenth century, cacao has been an important export earner for Ecuador. Today the importance of this sector remains, as Ecuador is the main producer and exporter of Fine and Flavor cacao worldwide. Motivated by the main transformations of the global food systems and the increasing demand for multidimensional credence attributes, this study examines the present state of Ecuador's cacao industry, identifies areas of opportunity, and discusses how the private and public sectors can work together to meet existing and emerging challenges. Findings are supported by interviews conducted with the principal actors in the Ecuadorian cacao industry and two case studies. The first case study focuses on how associativity can help cacao farmers producing high-quality beans to differentiate themselves and succeed in modern agri-food markets. The second case study explores the success of a local chocolate firm and its links with local cacao farmers. Findings suggest that market trends have created new business opportunities for cacao producers and chocolate processors. These opportunities are most open to firms who can personalize and differentiate their products, for example, through the use of quality certifications such as organic, fair trade, reduced carbon load, etc. More importantly, market developments are driving exporters to enhance the performance of cacao value chains in the country, but the sector requires coordination to capture reputation and credence-based demands for the local cacao.

Country Program Evaluation: Mexico 2013-2018
As part of its 2019 annual work plan, the Office of Evaluation and Oversight (OVE) has prepared the evaluation of the country program of the Inter-American Development Bank Group (IDBG) with Mexico during 2013-2018. This is the fourth independent evaluation of the Bank's country program with Mexico. The evaluation period was marked by the introduction of wide-ranging structural reforms, the need for reforms was driven by long-standing and worsening problems in numerous areas. This Country program Evaluation is also the first for Mexico that covers operations of the former Inter-American Development Corporation (IIC), because OVEs oversight mandate has been extended to IIC (now IDB Invest) since the 2016 consolidation of IDBGs non-sovereign guaranteed windows (AG-9/15).

2020 IDB Climate Finance
Under the current IDBG Corporate Results Framework (CRF) 2020-2023 (https://crf.iadb.org/en), the IDB committed to reach 30% of the total amount approved (including all lending operations) of climate finance during this period. In 2020, the IDB Group - composed of the IDB, IDB Lab (formerly the Multilateral Investment Fund) and IDB Invest - approved US$3.9 billion in climate finance as per the MDB climate finance tracking methodology. This resource is aimed at development activities carried out by the public and private sectors that reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and thus mitigate climate change, and/or that reduce vulnerability to climate change and contribute to an adaptation process. This amount represented 19.5% of the IDB Groups total approved amount for 2020. The IDB only climate finance in 2020 was 15%, equivalent to US$ 2 billion. If the COVID-19 related investments are excluded, the IDB climate finance reached 30%. Changes in demand from countries to respond to the pandemic affected the overall climate finance results by shifting the priority to social and fiscal sectors and to projects that could provide faster liquidity.

2019 IDBG Climate Finance Data
At the IDB Groups Annual Meeting in 2016, the Board of Governors endorsed the goal to increase finance of climate change-related projects in the Latin American and Caribbean region to 30% of the IDBs and IICs combined total approvals by 2020, subject to demand from borrowing member countries and clients, and access to external sources of concessional finance. During 2019, the IDB Group - composed of the IDB, IDB Lab (formerly the Multilateral Investment Fund) and IDB Invest - approved approximately US$5 billion in climate finance, that is, for development activities carried out by the public and private sectors that reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and thus mitigate climate change, and/or that reduce vulnerability to climate change and contribute to an adaptation process. This amount represented 29% of the IDB Groups total approved amount for 2019.

Are the Berries Ripe?: Export Potential for Ecuador's Blackberry Production
Blackberry production has been common for decades in Ecuador''s inter-Andean valleys, but a fresh or processed export industry has not emerged despite export successes experienced in neighboring countries. This case study examines the potential for expansion of blackberry export market and identifies several key barriers: low volume of production for export, phytosanitary and other obstacles constraining production at scale, lack of support services from the public sector, and lack of an organizational presence for producers seeking alternative markets. While production of blackberry is relatively high, and markets and an export window exist, Ecuadors industry needs vision and leadership for a viable export industry to emerge.
