Research at the policy frontier in Latin America: Health, Education, Infrastructure and Housing and Climate Change

Edited by: Sebastian Galiani, University of Maryland and NBER

There is a growing literature on applied microeconometrics and in particular the evaluation of programs and policies specific to Latin America. This topical collection consists of four papers that take stock of four key areas – health, education, housing and infrastructure, and climate change in Latin America – and propose the next frontier of research to support enactment of more effective policies going forward that might advance the region’s economic and social priorities. The InterAmerican Development Bank provided financing for the articles.
