The Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) was founded in 1959 with the goal to achieve development in a sustainable and climate-friendly way. It is the leading source of development financing for Latin American and the Caribbean.
The IDB’s focus areas include three development challenges and three cross-cutting issues. The development challenges include social inclusion and inequality, productivity and innovation, and economic integration. The cross-cutting issues include gender equality and diversity, climate change and environmental sustainability, as well as institutional capacity and the rule of law.
