Natural resources and cultural heritage

Protected areas, national parks and marine reserves comprise some of the most valuable natural assets of Latin American and Caribbean countries. The IDB finances a wide range of programs to enhance the long-term value of these assets. Many of these programs seek to protect the cultural heritage of communities that live in or near protected areas through sustainable tourism ventures that generate economic opportunities and benefit indigenous populations and women who depend directly on the quality and availability of natural resources.
