The Infrastructure and Environment Sector (INE) conceptualizes, prepares, supports the execution and supervises the IDB’s operations related to energy, transport, water and sanitation and rural development and natural disasters. Its functions include preparing the Bank sector policies, strategies, operational guidelines and programs in infrastructure and environment; conducting relevant research and analytical work, best practices and case studies on this area; and providing specialized technical support in borrowing member countries.

The sector works with the country departments to design and execute country and regional financial and non-financial programs and projects and evaluates the development results of such interventions. It also performs quality enhancement functions for social development projects and programs, to include guiding, designing and preparing Bank products’ execution, and analysis and mitigation of risks. INE is divided in the Energy Division, the Transport Division, Climate Change and Sustainability Division, the Water and Sanitation Division and Environment, Rural Development and Disaster Risk Management Division.

INE also leads IDB’s initiatives in the areas of infrastructure and environment, such as biofuels and public-private partnerships, including the Bank’s Sustainable Energy Initiative.
