About

The Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) supports efforts by Latin America and Caribbean countries to reduce poverty and inequality. We aim to bring about development in a sustainable, climate-friendly way. Established in 1959, we are the largest source of development financing for Latin America and the Caribbean, with a strong commitment to achieve measurable results, increased integrity, transparency, and accountability. We have an evolving reform agenda that seeks to increase our development impact in the region.
