WHAT WE DO

The Social Sector (SCL) conceptualizes, prepares, supports the execution and supervises the IDB’s operations related to gender and diversity, education, social protection and health, and labor markets.

Its functions include preparing the Bank sector policies, strategies, operational guidelines and programs in social development; conducting relevant research and analytical work, best practices and case studies on this area; and providing specialized technical support in borrowing member countries. SCL is divided in three Divisions and one Unit, namely: Education, Social Protection and Health, and Gender and Diversity, and Labor Markets Unit.

SCL 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.
