Scotland’s hub model: a compact PPP structure that could strengthen the quality of PPPs in Latin America and the Caribbean

Scotland’s hub model: a compact PPP structure that could strengthen the quality of PPPs in Latin America and the Caribbean

By Martin Finnigan and Michael walker, Caledonian Economics Ltd


With rapidly growing populations, the demand for good infrastructure and social services in many Latin America and Caribbean countries outstrips the financial and human capacity that governments can bring to bear.  Yet growing stability and improving governance are creating the conditions where PPP is a viable tool for delivering infrastructure projects, large and small, across the region.

¿Qué tan inclusivo es el reciclaje en tu ciudad?

¿Qué tan inclusivo es el reciclaje en tu ciudad?

Estrella Peinado-Vara  y Diana Rodriguez Velosa 

Si vives en una ciudad en América Latina y el Caribe (ALC), seguramente has visto recicladores informales en las calles y avenidas recuperando materiales reciclables en contenedores o bolsas de basura para luego venderlos o aprovecharlos. La separación y recuperación de residuos reciclables en la región está liderada por estas actividades informales. Del total de Residuos Sólidos Urbanos (RSU) que se producen en ALC, se estima que solamente el 
2,2% se recicla bajo esquemas formales. El resto lo recolectan los recicladores informales (o recicladores de base). Pero, ¿qué tanto sabemos de estos hombres y mujeres que trabajan diariamente en esta actividad? ¿Cómo se compara tu país con otros países de la región?

PPP models address the region’s urban challenges

PPP models address the region’s urban challenges

Imagine if all large and medium sized cities of Latin America had good quality, sustainable, modern and affordable transportation choices: metro lines, bike sharing systems and light rails. Envision cities with ample access to green, safe, well maintained public spaces and where most of the energy used is generated by biofuels originated from the recycling of municipality waste, and where information about these services are only one click away. All that functioning via innovative, transparent, sustainable and efficient Public-Private Partnerships (PPPs) models, where the private sector builds and/or manages these operations, assumes risks and its remuneration is linked to performance. Sounds like a dream? As of today, it may sound that way but the dream is getting closer to reality in various Latin American and Caribbean cities.

"La pesca hace parte de mí"

“Soy pescador de nacimiento. Desde muy pequeño y con la ayuda de un tío que ya falleció, fui adquiriendo el conocimiento y la habilidad de la pesca. Aprendí empíricamente”, comenta Edgardo Ramos Ocon, oriundo de Rincón del Mar, un pequeño municipio ubicado en San Onofre, departamento de Sucre, Colombia.
