The deadline for accepting proposals is April 26th, 2017
The Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) launched the 2017 Call for Proposals of the Initiative for the Promotion of Regional Public Goods in Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC), which supports projects aimed at resolving shared challenges and seizing opportunities for development through regional cooperation among at least three countries. Since 2004, the RPG Initiative has financed 140 projects, investing a total of more than US$103 million.
In 2017, the Initiative will provide grants to finance regional public goods (RPGs) that are produced collectively by a minimum of three IDB borrowing-member countries. Even though the Initiative is open to the promotion of RPGs in any development area covered by the IDB, alignment with the Bank's operational priorities is a selection criterion. The other two criteria are the value added of a regional (vs. national) approach to addressing a development challenge or opportunity, as well as the prospects of sustaining the benefits of regional collective action beyond the support of the Initiative.
All Information regarding the 2017 Call for Proposals can be accessed in the RPG Initiative website. All proposals must be presented in accordance with the General Guidelines applicable to all Call for Proposals and must besubmitted online before 05:00 pm (US Eastern Standard Time - Miami) on April 26th, 2017.
