Transforming for Greater Impact and Scale

We have a new approach that unifies and focuses the work of the IDB, IDB Invest and IDB Lab under one goal: we will ramp up the impact and scale of the results we achieve for the countries and people of Latin America and the Caribbean – and by extension, the world.

Three transformations make us not just bigger, but better, and drive the IDBImpact+ ethos. Ambitious, innovative programs and initiatives put that ethos into practice.
