INNOVATING IN LATIN AMERICAN AND CARIBBEAN CITIES FOR SUSTAINABLE URBAN DEVELOPMENT
The IDB Cities Lab is a platform for innovation, experimentation, and knowledge exchange that contributes to the sustainable development of Latin American and Caribbean cities. It provides a space for experimentation and co-creation to promote the development of innovative solutions to the challenges facing cities in the region. It also seeks to strengthen the design culture and implementation of projects based on evidence and data to better support decision making. Its main lines of action are:
- Identify and analyze trends to activate innovation in Latin American cities.
- Promote experimentation processes to incorporate innovation in cities and Bank operations.
- Connect cities and relevant actors to foster the exchange of innovative practices.
