Policy Notes

The purpose of the UNDP LAC Policy Notes series is to make visible the work carried out by our offices in the region. The series collects experiences and work on public policy issues on which UNDP has accompanied national and sub-national governments of Latin America and the Caribbean in their decision-making processes. 

These notes are published in the language in which they were produced. Notes originally written in Portuguese or French will be translated to facilitate their dissemination.
