During the period 2006-2010, under the leadership of DPAD, Guatemala was included in a list of countries selected to carry out a quantitative assessment for identifying the impact of macroeconomic and external shocks on poverty and inequality and to design more effective social protection policies.
The main partner of capacity development activities in Guatemala was Instituto Centroamericano de Estudios Fiscales (ICEFI), a regional research centre; and Secretaría de Planificación y Programación de la Presidencia (SEGEPLAN), the planning entity of Guatemala's government. DPAD collaborated closely with the Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean (ECLAC) for substantive and administrative support.
