Colombia - First Programmatic Productive and Sustainable Cities Development Policy Loan Program (Inglês)

The First Programmatic Productive and Sustainable Cities Development Policy Loan (DPL) Program will support a comprehensive set of policy and regulatory reforms that aim to: (i) improve access to basic water and sanitation and urban transport services, and mitigate vulnerability to natural disasters for the urban poor; (ii) promote the provision of affordable and safe low-income housing solutions; (iii) strengthen the ability of sub-national entities to coordinate and finance the structuring and implementation of regional and metropolitan development initiatives; and (iv) improve the productivity of the system of cities through improved connectivity within the network of cities and between cities and ports to external markets. These reforms are vital to support the system of cities in Colombia, in which cities are able to grow to their highest potential, and be engines for sustainable growth in the country. This programmatic engagement covers a range of financial, knowledge and convening services across multiple sectors including urban development and housing, urban transport, logistics and connectivity, water and sanitation and disaster risk management. The DPL program aims to reflect the multi-sectoral priorities of this programmatic engagement with an organizing focus on improving the sustainability, productivity and inclusiveness of Colombia's urban system. The economy expanded by a solid 5.9 percent in 2011 - one of the best growth performances in the region. Private domestic demand, supported by high consumer and investor confidence and access to cheap credit, led the growth process. On the supply side the expansion was spear-headed by the oil/mining, financial services, and commerce sectors. The growth process was accompanied by employment creation as reflected in the decline in the unemployment rate from 11.8 to 10.8 percent in 2011.
