Building a more Resilient and Low-Carbon Caribbean - Report 1: Climate Resiliency and Building Materials in the Caribbean
The Caribbean islands are among the 25 most-vulnerable nations in terms of disasters per-capita or land area, and climate change is only expected to intensify these vulnerabilities. The loss caused by climate events drags the ability of the Caribbean countries to invest in infrastructure and social programs, contributing to slower productivity growth, poorer health outcomes, and lower standards of living. Within this context, building resiliency should become a priority for the Caribbean countries. The series “Building a more resilient and low-carbon Caribbean”, focuses on improving the resiliency, sustainability and decarbonization of the construction industry in the Caribbean. The results show that increasing building resiliency is economically viable for the high-risk islands of the Caribbean, generating long term savings and increasing the infrastructure preparedness to the impacts of CC. Report 1 - Climate Resiliency and Building Materials in the Caribbean, presents a quantification of the economic losses caused by climate impact events in the Caribbean Region and correlate these figures with the most common construction materials, typically used in each of the countries building typologies. The losses caused by hurricanes concentrate mostly in the residential infrastructure and are mainly caused by weaknesses in roofs and their connection to the walls. The analysis suggests that improving the resiliency of outer walls and roofs in the Caribbean could significantly reduce the regions vulnerability to hurricanes and other climate impacts.

La presión fiscal equivalente en América Latina y el Caribe (1990-2021): actualización y estado de situación en la salida de la pandemia de COVID-19: Database
Esta es la tercera actualización de la base de datos de Presión Fiscal Equivalente (PFE) de América Latina y el Caribe (ALC) para el período 1990-2018 basada en la metodología BID-CIAT. La PFE mide de una manera más precisa la totalidad de los recursos recaudados en la región y tiene cuatro componentes: i) los ingresos impositivos tradicionales del gobierno general, incluidos aquellos de los gobiernos subnacionales; ii) las contribuciones públicas a la seguridad social, iii) los aportes obligatorios a regímenes privados de seguridad social; y iv) los ingresos no tributarios provenientes de la explotación de recursos naturales. De acuerdo con la tendencia creciente desde la década de los noventa, la PFE promedio para 25 países aumentó más de 6 puntos porcentuales del producto interno bruto (PIB), pasando del 17,3% al 23,6% entre 1990 y 2021. La dinámica de mediano plazo es explicada mayormente por los ingresos impositivos, que crecieron desde el 13,5% hasta el 18,0% del PIB en dicho período. Individualmente existe una alta heterogeneidad en cuanto a la evolución y al nivel de los ingresos tributarios y la PFE.

Latin America and the Caribbean Standardized Public Debt Database: Data as of December 2020
The LAC Debt Group believes that to have sound regional policy it is important to have valid, comparable, and standardized data on Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC). Therefore, at the core of the initiative is the development of a standardized sovereign debt database to help debt managers, policy makers, and other actors of financial markets, analyze the composition of public debt in LAC. The information presented in this database is provided by the Debt Management Offices of 26 LAC countries in response to a questionnaire specifically created to allow comparability of data. The questionnaire is intended to compile up-to-date standardized statistics to conduct cross-country comparisons over clear, objective, and homogeneous definitions of public debt.
