Current Work

Promoting Women’s Economic Empowerment

In collaboration with its local partner Red Nacional de Grupos Gestores (RNGG), CIPE is establishing a Women’s Business Resource Center (WBRC) in Quetzaltenango, Guatemala, to provide a safe, physical space where women can grow their businesses and develop their business skills without harassment. CIPE is also supporting a local women’s business network to encourage greater participation in leadership among women in the private sector.

Strengthening Democracy and Transparency

Since 2012 CIPE has collaborated with the National Economic Research Center (CIEN) to strengthen the country’s governmental institutions. CIPE worked with CIEN to develop concrete reform agendas and provide technical assistance to government ministries in policy implementation and monitoring. CIPE’s partner fulfilled a legislative watchdog function under the ”Alliance for an Efficient Congress Initiative.” The Alliance promotes transparency and increases accountability of Legislative activity through media, generating digestible data for the public to be aware of the work of Congress.

Supporting the transition to a digital government and the FUTURE OF WORK

In collaboration with the National Economic Research Center (CIEN), CIPE provides technical assistance for institutions to improve their ability to digitize processes and facilitate compliance. By supporting the expansion of digitalization, CIPE is promoting the modernization of government institutions and administrative processes. The project works closely with civil society and private sector allies to strengthen institutions at the national level, increasing transparency, and aiding Guatemala’s economic recovery efforts.
