Convocatoria 2014 de propuestas para promover Bienes Públicos Regionales en América Latina y el Caribe

El Banco Interamericano de Desarrollo (BID) lanzó la Convocatoria para la presentación de propuestas 2014 de la Iniciativa para la Promoción de Bienes Públicos Regionalesen América Latina y el Caribe (ALC), que se basa en la premisa de que los países de la región comparten desafíos y oportunidades de desarrollo, que pueden ser abordados o aprovechados de manera más efectiva y eficiente a través de la cooperación regional.

En 2014, la Iniciativa proveerá hasta US$8 millones en financiamiento no reembolsable para financiar bienes públicos regionales (BPRs) que sean producidos de manera colectiva por un grupo de países miembros prestatarios del BID. Aunque la Iniciativa se encuentra abierta a la promoción de BPRs en cualquier área de desarrollo cubierta por el BID, la alineación con las prioridades operativas del BID constituye un criterio de selección. Los otros dos criterios de selección son el valor agregado de un enfoque regional (vs. nacional) para enfrentar un desafío u oportunidad de desarrollo, y la perspectiva de sostener los beneficios de la acción colectiva regional más allá del apoyo de la Iniciativa.

La Iniciativa es el instrumento de financiamiento no reembolsable más importante del Banco para el apoyo a la cooperación intra-regional y al diseño colectivo de soluciones de desarrollo en ALC. La demanda de los recursos de la Iniciativa se ha intensificado en paralelo con la creciente importancia de la Cooperación Sur-Sur multilateral o bilateral (SSC) en la agenda de desarrollo de la mayoría de los países de ALC. El interés en la CSS entre los países miembros prestatarios del Banco refleja el hecho de que la región es una fuente de soluciones innovadoras de desarrollo que pueden ser compartidas y replicadas por otros países de ALC y en otras regiones del mundo en desarrollo.

Desde 2004, la Iniciativa BPR ha financiado 92 proyectos, invirtiendo un total de US$73 millones en la promoción de BPRs. Adicionalmente, 13 proyectos seleccionados bajo la Convocatoria 2013 por US$10 millones se encuentran en la última etapa del proceso de aprobación.

La información relacionada con la Convocatoria se encuentra disponible aquí. Todas las propuestas deben ser presentadas a través del portal electrónico y en concordancia con los Procedimientos de la Convocatoria antes de las 11:59 pm (horario de la costa este de los Estados Unidos de América) del 24 de abril de 2014.
