At the Inter-American Development Bank, we’re devoted to improving lives. Since 1959, we’ve been a leading source of long-term financing for economic, social, and institutional development in Latin America and the Caribbean. We do more than lending though. We partner with our 48-member countries to provide Latin America and the Caribbean with cutting-edge research about relevant development issues, policy advice to inform their decisions, and technical assistance to improve on the planning and execution of projects. For this, we need people who not only have the right skills, but also are passionate about improving lives.
Working with us you will be surrounded by a diverse group of people who have years of experience in all types of development fields, including transportation, health, gender and diversity, communications and much more.
• CID Regional Programs (CID/REG). In line with the Institutional Strategy, CID’s Management, through a team dedicated to Regional Programs (CID / REG), has increased the priority to promote and provide technical and financial support to regional initiatives in various fields, including: electrical interconnection, trade facilitation and border management, road infrastructure, logistics and transportation, broadband, disaster risk management and health policy. Such efforts imply challenges regarding the relations with countries and their regional coordination institutions, where the Bank participates with institutional positions on regional topics. CID coordinates this regional dynamic for the Bank and works closely with the Sector divisions to provide solid technical input. To this end, CID/REG maintains a permanent dialogue and coordination with the regional and subregional integration entities, primarily: the Mesoamerica Project, the General Secretariat of the Central American Integration System (SICA) and the Central American Economic Integration Secretariat (SIECA).
