Fostering inclusion, boosting innovation, and strengthening regional integration are some of IFC's priorities in Latin America and the Caribbean. We also help countries tackle climate change.
Our focus in Latin America and the Caribbean is on promoting:
Increasing access to finance, basic goods and services, and infrastructure.
Competitiveness and innovation
Addressing bottlenecks in infrastructure by increasing public-private partnerships and improving the investment climate; expanding vocational and tertiary education; and supporting new sectors, such as mobile banking.
Regional and global integration
Improving legal frameworks for trade logistics; integrating regional financial markets; and strengthening energy networks and transportation.
Catalyzing private-sector solutions to address mitigation and adaptation issues in the region.
In LAC, we work with partners in the private sector to close gender gaps and improve women’s access to assets and more and better jobs.
