The Regional Policy Dialogue (RPD) constitutes one of the IDB’s main mechanisms to promote the knowledge sharing between high-level government officials from Latin America and the Caribbean and experts in key development areas. The RPD covers strategic topics for the region through its networks:


The objective of these networks is to promote the dialogue between public officials that work in the same sector, with the aim to facilitate the exchange of experiences, innovative practices, and lessons learned. Through this channel, the main policymakers of the region will be able to identify common solutions to the most pressing development issues and increase their intellectual and institutional capital.

The dialogue that takes place during the RPD’s meetings not only benefits participants but it also contributes to the Bank’s substantive commitment with the region, by providing direct feedback on borrowing member countries’ policy priorities.
