The objective of the IDB Group Country Strategy with Belize 2022-2025 is to help Belize overcome the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic and support efforts to achieve long-term robust, inclusive, and sustainable growth. To that end, the IDB Group will focus its actions in three priority areas:

(i) fiscal sustainability and management;

(ii) private sector productivity and sustainable growth, with a focus on MSMEs; and

(iii) human capital. Dialogue areas will focus on migration and citizen security. Support to cross-cutting issues relating to gender and diversity, institutional capacity and rule of law, digital transformation, and climate change and disaster risk management will be streamlined into each of the priority areas.

The country strategy has been the outcome of an extensive dialogue with the country authorities as well as civil society and considered the country’s need to generate faster, sustainable, and inclusive growth to mitigate the effects of the crisis and overcome long-standing development challenges.
