The IDB Group and Civil Society

The Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) promotes development by working with Governments, the Private Sector and Civil Society in Latin America and the Caribbean.

Civil Society

The IDB considers civil society a wide array of organizations: academia, not-for profit professional and corporate social responsibility groups, associations, non-governmental and not-for profit organizations, trade unions, foundations, faith-based institutions, organizations which belong to or represent interests of afro descendant and indigenous people, among others.

Our Level of Engagements

Partnership

The IDB builds partnerships with different stakeholders to advance development. With Civil Society, the IDB leverages on Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) technical and field experience to implement projects or projects’ components.

Collaboration

The IDB Group promotes collaboration with civil society in a diversity sectors in order to advance development through Civil Society for Innovative Solutions. The IDB is also adding human capital to development by training CSOs in its program “Civil Society: Institutional Capacity”. Besides, the Bank encourages spaces to advance common agendas of development and share value with expert CSOs, Civil Society Building Knowledge. At the same time, the IDB has a CSO network in each of the 26 countries known as Civil Society Consultative Groups (ConSoC).
