Latin America faces a high levels of poverty coupled with significant disparities related to inequality in income distribution…

  • 130 million people in the region live on US$2 or less per day
  • An additional 83 million people struggle on the edge of poverty
  • The poorest 20% of the population have 2.9% of total income
  • The richest 20% of the population have 57.1% of total income

… and that poverty is marked by a gender, ethnicity and age bias

WOMEN

  • 11.5% unemployed vs. 7.1% for men (exclude informal work)
  • 43.2% of women do not have disposable income vs. 21.7% of men

  • Urban population grows at 1.7%; rural decreases by 0.4%/year

A Clear Focus: Access

  • In Latin America and the Caribbean region, the poor lack many things, but motivation, entrepreneurial drive, and intelligence are not among them
      • What stops the region’s unemployed, micro-entrepreneurs and SMEs is a lack of ACCESS to key resources for the development of fruitful economic activity
  • The MIF’s challenge is to level the ‘Access Playing Field’ to empower economic activity, growth and a way out of poverty

The MIF seeks to focus on “Equal ACCESS to economic activity”

slide7

A central challenge for economic expansion and poverty reduction in the region is Access

Opportunity and successful economic activity are largely a function of Access

Resources needed for the development of fruitful economic activity

Prerequisites

Challenges along the way

  • Access to Basic Services
  • Access to Finance
  • Access to Markets
  • Access to Skills and Capacity

How to focus on ACCESS

  • Focus on specific areas where we can have the greatest impact
    • Have expertise
    • There is a clear need
    • Sufficient funding is not already provided by other donors
    • Can leverage knowledge, resources, partners and/or work with the IDB
  • Be strategic. Each topic will have
    • Specific goals that define “success” e.g. Rotary Club - eliminating polio
    • Identified the actors needed to reach the following goal
    • A knowledge strategy; identify the knowledge products needed to influence those actors
    • A roadmap of projects that will create the necessary results and knowledge
    • A dissemination strategy; where, when and how to reach the key actors

The MIF “Access Lab” - The Next Way Forward

  • While the MIF has very specific indicators for each project, and is ahead of many, it needs to do more, and Donors are demanding more
      • An integrative approach – impact / learning / knowledge / dissemination
      • Developing deeper expertise in key areas
      • Measuring performance more profoundly
      • Using innovative research methods
      • Sharing knowledge more broadly

Initial funding for the “Access Lab” to come primarily from the Chinese Fund for Increasing Productivity and Promoting Inclusive Economic Growth, while an adequate use of project and ultimately MIF resources ensures its sustainability

slide12

MIF Access Lab - Focus on IMPACT

  • A multi-pronged approach
    • Develop MIF impact indicators at 4 specific levels
      • The MIF as a whole
      • Each Access Area
      • Each topic within the Access Areas
      • Each project
    • Increase amounts available for Impact Evaluation
      • Set aside more project funds
      • Evaluate 25 projects per year vs 7 today
      • Develop and participate in innovative evaluation and research
        • International Initiative for Impact Evaluation
        • MIT Poverty Action Lab

    • Use the convening power of the IDB
    • Create a “knowledge repository” or “knowledge library”
    • Take a larger role in the “dissemination component” of MIF projects
