*Notes:

  1. Selected development contributions, including contributions to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), are based on contributions reported through the IDB Group Corporate Results Framework.
  2. For the IDB, approved amounts correspond to the projects’ original approved amounts of IDB financing. The height of the bars for the amounts in the figures are not necessarily equivalent.
  3. For the IDB, approvals and disbursements include all IDB financing: Ordinary Capital, the IDB Grant Facility, and funds under administration.
  4. For IDB Invest, amounts reflect Ordinary Capital and Funds from the Inter-American Investment Corporation (IIC). Also, approved amounts under the Trade Finance Facilitation Programs (TFFP) equal TFFP loan disbursements and TFFP guarantees issued.
  5. Disbursement projections for 2020 are as of 31 August 2020. Projections for disbursements can vary because they depend on the progress of individual projects, new approvals, and the financing needs of the countries. Approvals and disbursements of 2020 are as of 15 August 2020.
  6. The IDB Group is a family of three international organizations working together to improve lives in Latin America and the Caribbean. The IDB works with governments; IDB Invest collaborates with the private sector; and IDB Lab tests innovative ways to drive more inclusive growth.
