Outreach and Partnerships
Europe, Israel and the IDB
The Inter-American Development Bank's (IDB) Office in Europe focuses on strengthening strategic alliances between the IDB and all 16 European member countries (Austria, Belgium, Croatia, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Italy, Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, Spain, Slovenia, Sweden, Switzerland and United Kingdom), Israel, the European Union institutions, as well as other key partners including international organizations such as the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), the World Trade Organization (WTO), academic institutions, NGOs as well as a range of other European-based private and public sector partner organizations. The IDB’s Office in Europe is one of two Regional Offices under the Office of Outreach and Partnerships (ORP) and its activities are closely coordinated with the Bank’s headquarters in Washington, DC.
The current key priority of the IDB’s Office in Europe is to mobilize resources through contributions to a range of instruments from project finance, grants as well as reimbursable co-financing, trust funds, secondments and other financial and non-financial means that will contribute to the IDB’s mission of helping reduce poverty in Latin America and the Caribbean in a sustainable manner. The IDB Office in Europe also represents the Bank, by request from Headquarters, at high level forums in Europe; and follows the lead in coordination with the Office of Outreach and Partnerships, supporting activities involving the identification, development and management of new relationships with potential actors from the public and private sectors, foundations, NGOs and philanthropic organizations, academia, and think tanks.
