Deadline: 26 April 2017
The Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) is currently seeking proposals for its Initiative for the Promotion of Regional Public Goods based on the premise that the countries of Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC) share numerous development challenges and opportunities that can be addressed more effectively and efficiently through regional collective action and cooperation.
The Initiative defines regional public goods (RPGs) as goods, services or resources that are produced and consumed collectively by the public sector and, if appropriate, the private, non-profit sector in a minimum of three borrowing member countries of the IDB. The Initiative focuses on RPGs that have the potential to generate significant shared benefits and positive spillover effects. Spillover effects can be expressed in terms of scope (benefits extend beyond the originally targeted sector in each country) and/or scale (benefits extend beyond the original group of countries)
- Social exclusion and inequality
- Low productivity and innovation
- Lack of regional economic integration
- Gender equality and diversity
- Climate change and environmental sustainability
- Institutional capacity and the rule of law
The following entities are eligible to submit proposals:
- Public national, sub-national and local institutions in the IDB’s borrowing member countries with legal capacity to enter into agreements with the Bank.
- Private, non-profit entities that are legally established in one of the IDB’s borrowing member countries.
- Latin American and/or Caribbean regional or sub-regional institutions with legal capacity to enter into agreements with the IDB.
