About the Inter-American Development Bank
The IDB works to improve lives in Latin America and the Caribbean. Through financial and technical support for countries working to reduce poverty and inequality, they help improve health and education, and advance infrastructure. Their aim is to achieve development in a sustainable, climate-friendly way. With a history dating back to 1959, today they are the leading source of development financing for Latin America and the Caribbean. They provide loans, grants, and technical assistance; and we conduct extensive research. They maintain a strong commitment to achieving measurable results and the highest standards of integrity, transparency, and accountability.
The Bank’s current focus areas include three development challenges – social inclusion and equality, productivity and innovation, and economic integration – and three cross-cutting issues – gender equality and diversity, climate change and environmental sustainability; and institutional capacity and the rule of law.
