The World Federation of Development Financing Institution’s Knowledge Hub (WFDFI_KH) is an online portal that clusters knowledge and resources on development financing across all development intervention areas. It is a free-for all web space where development financing practitioners and enthusiasts could access existing and compelling knowledge products from a wide range of institutions, with diverse structure and procedures, engaged in supporting and promoting development finance and its crosscutting issues in advancing policies, processes, programs, projects and practices for the benefits of their beneficiaries and stakeholders. The two-fold purposes of the WFDFI_KH are shaping and advancing policy and advocacy positions that impact the development of the banking and finance community worldwide and improve DFI capacity, as well as facilitating knowledge management and sharing.

Existing explanations for slum growth focus on rural-urban migration and poverty.

This report examines the production structure of the countries of the region in order to pinpoint strategies for economic recovery, job creation, and export diversification. In this way, public policy responses will be able to take into account the specific characteristics of each sector
This paper provides evidence from
Brazil that local government actions can increase slum growth
without changes in poverty or immigration. Using a regression discontinuity design in close elections, I find that victories
by a center-left, pro-poor party in the 2000 municipal election
strongly increased the share of households living in slums in
2010 compared to 2000.
