Attention: Proposals for a database on institutional variables

The Inter-American Development Bank is calling on research institutions and individual researchers from its 48 member countries for proposals to design and implement a database on institutional variables.

The database is for civil and identification registries in Latin America and the Carribean, and will help the bank’s ongoing research on different development outcomes across countries in the two regions.

The winning proposal will receive a $35,000 grant from the IDB-administered Korean Poverty Reduction Fund.

Entries must be submitted at the IDB website. Deadline of submission is on Feb. 11, 2012.
