A Spanish language site to support sustainable development practices in Latin America among business and NGOs.   The project is lead by Roberto Artavia, former Dean of the INCAE business school and a thought leader on competitiveness topics in the region.

 

9. MAP (Better Conditions for Productivity) NEW

In 2010, the IDB launched 2 calls for proposals under the window ¨Better Conditions for Productivity¨ (MAP in Spanish).  The response to the calls has been overwhelming and the quality of the research and project proposals very high.  You can find the winners of the first call on Informality and Regulation on the web page, and in January we will announce the winners of the SME Finance call that just ended.  On the web page you can sign up on the consultants mailing list and follow MAP activities in 2011.

8. Ireland’s National Competitiveness Council

What was said last year, when this site was first listed, bears repeating:  ¨Once again a test case for policymakers, Ireland’s NCC faces its toughest challenge as economic growth recedes and macro imbalances reappear.  Look at the Annual Report which uses over 140 variables to assess the state of the Irish “miracle”. ¨
