As part of the non-lending technical assistance program “Paraguay Poverty and Equity” the World Bank is offering training on MAMS to officials at Paraguay’s Secretaría Técnica de Planificación del Desarrollo Económico y Social (STP), which depends on the Presidency. Going forward, STP’s officials plan to use the model for forward-looking distributional analysis of issues facing Paraguay’s economy, including investment in infrastructure and spending in education and health sectors. The training and technical supervision is provided by Martin Cicowiez (CEDLAS-Universidad Nacional de La Plata, Argentina). The project is led by Maria Ana Lugo of the World Bank. Funding for the activity is provided by the PSIA (Poverty Social Impact Analysis) Trust Fund, through the activity “Capacity building in Paraguay on tools for distributional analysis” (TF017321). This activity started in the fall of 2014 and is expected to end in June 2015.
