The IDB and Civil Society
Partners for inclusion and development
The IDB collaborates with a wide variety of civil society organizations and NGOs, with the main aim of strengthening their efforts to reduce poverty in Latin America and the Caribbean in a sustainable and environmentally-friendly manner.
For the IDB, efforts with CSOs and NGOs are of crucial value, not only to fulfill the objectives of the institution, but also to generate forums for participation that give voice to communities, making available all cumulative experience, generating knowledge, and, above all, ensuring the inclusion of project beneficiaries through a variety of mechanisms.
“Latin America and the Caribbean development cannot be visualized without mutually respectful and responsible efforts by the IDB with the national governments, private sectors, and CSOs.”
Roberto Vellutini, Vice President for Countries, IDB
