The Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) has identified four challenges that limit the technical and operational capacity of the State: inefficient bureaucracy, corruption, crime, and inadequate digital progress.
To support countries in the Latin American and Caribbean (LAC) region in this undertaking, we provide project financing, technical assistance, and advice to governments to promote management models and structures in the following areas: transformation of public administration, data and digital government, citizen security and justice, and transparency and integrity.
The IDB strengthens the management capacity of public administration to improve the lives of citizens and enhance their trust in the State.
The IDB supports governments from Latin America and the Caribbean in the design and implementation of digital transformation plans and initiatives to improve the efficiency and quality of the public services provided to citizens and businesses.
The IDB helps countries in the region tackle challenges of security and justice that affect the Rule of Law and, in turn, economic and social development.
The IDB supports transparency and integrity reforms aligned with international standards and enabled by digital technologies.
The IDB's Fiscal Division works closely with member countries in Latin America and the Caribbean strengthening their fiscal policy and management at both the national and subnational levels, to achieve equitable and sustainable growth.
