This series aims to disseminate research in progress relevant to advancing our understanding of complex development issues in Latin America and the Caribbean. It feeds on research produced within UNDP initiatives by scholars from the region or interested in the region. It showcases research meant for later publication in other outlets -journals or books- that, for the same reason, has been subject to a demanding peer-review process before appearing as part of the series.
Papers are published in the language in which they were produced.
We present it hoping that it will contribute to improving our knowledge about matters relevant to all in the path towards more equal, productive, sustainable and resilient societies.
