Capacity Development and Advisory Services
In Mexico stabilization and structural adjustment reform policies have been implemented to ensure high and steady growth rates, but these policies have been obstructed by periodic financial and macroeconomic instability. At the same time, inequality, poverty, and also the vulnerability of the non-poor to become poor have remained serious problems in the region. In order to identify the impact of macroeconomic and external shocks on poverty and inequality in Mexico, DPAD conducted a series of capacity development activities in the country.
The main partner of capacity development activities in Mexico was the Social Development Secretariat (SEDESOL). DPAD collaborated closely with the Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean (ECLAC) for substantive and administrative support.
