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.

Corporate venturing: How to survive and thrive in the 21st century

Sixty-one. That is how many companies on the Fortune 500 list were able to hold their spots from 1955 to 2015.  A full 88% fell off during this 60-year period. What caused this corporate extinction?  Well, one way to think about this question is to look at those that held their place on this list.

The Sum of the Parts: Why Partnerships Matter in Youth Employment

The Sum of the Parts: Why Partnerships Matter in Youth Employment

For anyone working in development, the topic of youth unemployment is central, remains virtually unabated, and drives much debate over the right paths, strategies, partnerships, and funding mechanisms.

¿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?
