LACER-LACEA Repository

Welcome to the LACER-LACEA digital repository. In recognition that knowledge is a public good that must be accessible at no cost to all audiences, this repository is a network that provides access to other repositories containing books, reports, journals, working papers and databases on Latin American economic and related topics, produced for public use by international organizations and academic institutions.

The LACER-LACEA digital repository supports optimal discoverability and re-usability of the content by complying with Dublin Core Metadata Initiative (DCMI) standards and the Open Archives Initiative Protocol for Metadata Harvesting (OAI-PMH)

Administered by LACEA (Latin America and the Caribbean Economic Association) and with the initial support of international organizations such as the World Bank, the Inter-American Development Bank and the Development Bank of Latin America (CAF), the first phase of the LACER-LACEA project is currently launched.

By extending and improving access to research on Latin America, the LACER-LACEA network aims to encourage use of knowledge in effective and innovative ways, in order to help solve economic and social problems and, ultimately, improve people’s lives.
