INDES

The IDB Group works to improve lives in Latin America and the Caribbean. In the knowledge arena, the goal is to make the Bank a flagship institution in promoting open knowledge in the region.
The Inter-American Institute for Economic and Social Development (INDES) advances open knowledge products about social and economic development in Latin America and the Caribbean.
We are a team of highly skilled professionals who are specialists in key strategic areas: development of institutions and the financial sector, economic development, social development, infrastructure and climate change, and integration and commerce.
Our mission is to increase knowledge and strengthen skills of target audiences in the region, as well as of IDB employees, in order to promote economic and social development in Latin America and the Caribbean.
Since 1995 INDES has collaborated with universities, governments, international development agencies, and civil society organizations to offer courses to populations previously difficult to reach. Together, we deliver a broad base of combined knowledge as broadly as possible.
