DESCRIPTION

Established in 1959, the Inter-American Development Bank (IADB) is a multilateral organization that seeks to improve the quality of life in Latin America and the Caribbean using sustainable means. It supports countries through financial and technical aid such as loans, grants, and research. The IADB is focused on three main development challenges, namely: social inclusion and inequality, productivity and innovation, and economic integration. It consists of 48 members and meets annually to discuss issues facing member states. Their goals include reducing poverty and inequality, addressing the needs of small and vulnerable countries, fostering development through the private sector, addressing climate change, renewable energy, and environmental sustainability, and promoting regional cooperation and integration.

To fulfill their aspirations, the IADB leads a number of programs and projects to help nations effectively implement solutions. Uniquely, this organization’s major shareholders are the developing countries that borrow from it, giving them major decision-making power. Delegates in the IADB will have to examine the success rate of current methods and attempt to reform them in order to benefit their respective countries.

The Inter-American Development Bank (IADB) is an intermediate committee that offers an experience for all delegates with interest.
