Gender Gaps in Access to the Mortgage Market of Ecuador
The study "Gender gaps in access to the mortgage market in Ecuador" analyzes the access of women in conditions of poverty and moderate poverty to obtain a home loan in the formal financial system, the dimensioning and characterization of critical nodes and potentialities (supply and demand), qualifying the current demand and the type of housing for which credit is granted; as well as the identification and characterization of the main challenges faced by women in the granting, the level of exclusion, the credit behavior and the practices and conceptions of financial institutions (IFIs) that offer housing credit, from which the present conclusions and establish recommendations that contribute to narrowing the identified gender gaps, contributing to the implementation of projects and public housing policy in the country.

How community involvement contributes to inclusive program delivery in Guyana
Engaging beneficiary communities in program planning and coordination is key for inclusive and sustainable development. In Guyana where urban and hinterland settlements scatter across 83,000 square miles, meaningful engagements require careful strategies that consider cultural and geographical diversities. Given that most indigenous peoples live in the sparsely populated hinterland, programs rely upon the Inter-American Development

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

Alternativas para lograr viviendas sociales accesibles en renta en Perú

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.

Lo metropolitano: escala, complejidad y gobernanza
¿Cómo definimos la unidad territorial metropolitana? ¿Cómo establecemos límites territoriales que garantizan la integración de sus sistemas ecológicos y sociales? ¿Cómo gestionamos los flujos migratorios y los condicionantes del cambio climático que ejercen presión sobre las infraestructuras metropolitanas? En los últimos años, la literatura de desarrollo ha revelado conflictos emergentes de las metrópolis de América Latina y el Caribe. Las preguntas parecen ser simples y de naturaleza apremiante, pero las respuestas implican desafíos críticos de conocimiento y coordinación institucional. Por ejemplo, reconocemos que las personas se mueven, interactúan y satisfacen sus necesidades más allá de los límites político-administrativos, pero no existen suficientes arreglos institucionales que consideren conjuntamente los sistemas de movilidad y la distribución de servicios y bienes territoriales. Esta publicación nos invita a revisar nuevamente la forma en que hemos delimitado la Unidad Territorial Metropolitana. Los contenidos se organizan en tres capítulos que avanzan hacia la construcción de una gobernanza sensible a su escala y complejidad dentro de la región. El primero reflexiona sobre la escala, incluyendo perspectivas históricas y técnicas, como la incorporación de tecnologías que actualizan datos geoespaciales de ocupación y cambio de uso de suelo. El segundo profundiza en las dimensiones de complejidad e intersectorialidad, como la economía, la movilidad, la equidad, el cambio climático, la salud, la calidad de vida y los desafíos de la migración. El tercero se nutre del conocimiento acumulado para recorrer aspectos claves de la gobernanza metropolitana y su sostenibilidad fiscal. Por último, la revisión de experiencias internacionales entrega lecciones sobre las distintas formas en que se ha asumido la unidad metropolitana dentro de las infraestructuras institucionales. Es necesario anticipar aspectos claves de la escala y las dimensiones necesarias para construir acuerdos institucionales efectivos. La invitación es a definir antes de formular una gobernanza metropolitana.

The Potential for Ride-hailing Integration with Mass Transit Systems: A choice Experiment in Latin America
As transportation alternatives facilitated by TNCs (Transportation Network Companies) have gained popularity around the world, research has increasingly focused on understanding their impacts on urban mobility, with several studies examining whether they are competing with public transit trips, increasing vehicle kilometers, or contributing to congestion. Recent policy discussions have turned to whether these services could also have positive benefits, such as complementing mass transit services as a first- and last-mile solution. Most research to date has focused on industrialized countries, with little work focusing on Global South cities. Seeking to fill significant evidence gaps on the impacts of ride-hailing on travel behavior, this paper builds on a stated preference survey in three large metropolitan areas in Latin America (Bogota, Medellin, and Mexico City) to evaluate the potential of introducing an integrated scheme of ride-hailing and mass transit. The scenario of the integrated scheme places ride-hailing as a filler of the first- and last-mile gap left by mass transit. We use discrete choice models and simulations to assess the potential for modal shifts under different pricing scenarios. Results suggest limited feasibility (or modal shifts) of an integrated system of ride-hailing with mass transit under the scenarios considered. Even with significant discounts on the integrated fare, for two of the three cases, the additional ridership would remain comparatively low. Nevertheless, this opens the door for considering other app-based mobility options operating under a sharing perspective and that can reduce operative costs in an integrated scheme.

Incorporating Men into Caregiving Tasks: Dismantling Barriers and Reframing Roles in Latin America and the Caribbean
Deeply entrenched cultural norms in the LAC society tend to dictate that women should bear the primary responsibility for domestic tasks and caregiving. This social perception results in an unequal distribution of chores, not only within households but also in the broader work environment. This policy brief offers a thorough review of robust academic studies on men's involvement in caregiving and examines specific cases where further research is warranted. It particularly focuses on assessing the effectiveness of various public policies that encourage men's engagement in caregiving at home and in their professional lives, emphasizing the pressing need for a critical approach to this issue through rigorous evaluations and detailed research.

Financial Development, Growth, and Inequality: The Role of Institutions in Latin America and the Caribbean
This publication explores the relationships between institutions, financial development, and income inequality. It assesses the extent of reforms that can promote financial development and argues that institutional improvements capable of increasing financial development can simultaneously mitigate income inequality. This work, focusing on the Latin American and Caribbean region, uses a broad set of measures of financial development, financial institutions, and capital markets. It employs a comprehensive set of inequality indicators and income definitions, as well an econometric model of the financial possibility frontier, to demonstrate that institutions contributing to financial development also help reduce income inequality.
