Estratégia Institucional
IDBImpact+ - Inter-American Development Bank - IDB

The IDB Group’s Institutional Strategy renews the Bank’s mission to be the partner of choice for Latin America and the Caribbean, with a commitment to addressing the region’s vulnerabilities and unlocking its potential to foster transformative social and economic progress while actively combating climate change. It sets the Group’s strategic direction through 2030 to bring a new level of impact and scale in the region, defining a new chapter in our history that we call IDBImpact+.

Three mutually reinforcing objectives are at the core of the Institutional Strategy, driving action across the full range of our development projects.

We are committed to increasing the region’s long-term growth, by investing in infrastructure, empowering the private sector to drive productivity and innovation, and enhancing regional integration.

To achieve our core objectives, we work in seven areas of operational focus. The first three are addressed through targeted projects as well as through their mainstreaming in diverse sectors to enhance impact.

Biodiversity, Natural Capital and Climate Action

Gender Equality and Inclusion of Diverse Population Groups

Institutional Capacity, Rule of Law and Citizen Security

Social Protection and Human Capital Development

Sustainable, Resilient and Inclusive Infrastructure

Productive Development and Innovation through the Private Sector

Regional Integration

Our approach to serving the region centers around five elements to maximize the delivery of value and results. 
Each leverages our comparative advantages and builds complementarities with other international financial institutions.

Accountability is key. 

Our Institutional Strategy was informed by the broadest public-consultation process in our history. A new Impact Framework will monitor and measure our performance against ambitious targets.



We have a new approach that unifies and focuses the work of the IDB, IDB Invest and IDB Lab under one goal.
