Movilidad inteligente: Desarrollo de soluciones para la infraestructura urbana de América Latina

¿Cómo te viniste al trabajo hoy? En muchas ciudades de América Latina, este trayecto, que realizamos diario, tarda más de una hora. En Sao Paulo, la gente, en promedio, necesita 63 minutos para llegar al trabajo. Para muchas personas que viven en grandes ciudades como Ciudad de México, Bogotá, Lima o Santiago, pasar dos valiosas horas para ir y volver a casa del trabajo no es algo extraño. En los últimos años, la cantidad de coches registrados en Ciudad de México duplica la cantidad de bebés recién nacidos. El transporte público y la infraestructura urbana no se han desarrollado al mismo ritmo que el crecimiento económico.

Hacia una nueva generación de asociaciones público-privadas

Hacia una nueva generación de asociaciones público-privadas

 

América Latina y el Caribe claman por mejoras en infraestructura. Se requiere una inversión estimada del 5 por ciento del PIB de la región—o $250 mil millones de dólares por año—para desarrollar proyectos que resultan fundamentales para el desarrollo económico, no sólo mejorar carreteras y puentes, sino también construir hospitales y crear movilidad para ciudades más inteligentes. Muchos negocios ven a la falta de infraestructura como un serio problema en la región.

Social Impact Bonds: Alternative financing mechanisms for education

 

I had the pleasure of presenting at the “The Global Education & Skills Forum 2014,” held in Dubai March 15-17.  The Forum invites heads of government to meet with business leaders with a view toward strengthening ties and further engaging the private sector in the field of education.  The developing world has over one billion 15 to 24 year-olds who are faced with limited access to quality education, depriving businesses of talent that drives economic growth and reduces poverty. In Latin America and the Caribbean, despite substantial growth in education spending over the last decade, educational outcomes in the region lag behind other regions over the world – from years of school to quality of schooling.  The key message that came out of the Forum for me is that governments, civil society and private sector need to forge effective and integrated partnerships to make the best use of new technologies to provide access to quality education to children around the world.

The Accelerator, a program to accelerate businesses providing basic services to poor and low-income populations



Latin America and the Caribbean is making substantial progress in moving people out of poverty and providing basic services to its population. Yet, the region has not covered the “last mile” to bring accessible and quality health, education, electricity and water and sanitation to the most vulnerable households.  Its cities are the fastest growing in the world within influx of poor people demanding dependable and quality basic services while many rural regions still lack basic services.

The environment of PPPs in Latin America: the municipal level as the next border


In early June, the MIF organized a webinar attended by over 75 people from the private and public sector to present and discuss the results of the latest Infrascope. I was very happy about the participation among the participants who participated with some great questions!  Among the themes that stood out are how to apply the Infrascope methodology to cities. Especially growing medium sized cities face growing demands for basic services such as such as urban transport, clean water and sanitation, public safety, health and education.
