IDA in Latin America and the Caribbean (الإنجليزية)

In fiscal year 2000, IDA commitments totaled $165 million in Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC) with Bolivia and Honduras among IDA's largest borrowers. IDA credits are focused in the social sector, including support for social investment funds, primary and secondary education, health care, and social safety nets. IDA also supports reconstruction after natural disasters, water supply and sanitation, infrastructure, agriculture and rural development, as well as public sector reform and private sector development. IDA credits in LAC are increasingly based on country-driven comprehensive development strategies emphasizing empowerment, opportunity and security. An innovative and responsive use of IDA credits is to provide financing for Social Investment Funds. IDA has been a key source of funding for the Bank's response to natural disasters including Hurricane Mitch. IDA resources also support the Bank's overall strategy to support countries' initiatives to improve governance. Rural poverty is widespread, making rural development and agricultural strategy of primary importance. In addition to the continued approvals for new IDA credits, the Bank is providing substantial debt relief under the enhanced Heavily Indebted Poor Countries Initiative (HIPC).
