At the IDB Group we are very committed to the sustainability of our region and the work we do.

The Paris Agreement, the UN's sustainable development goals and the delivery of iNDCs marked a turning point towards shouldering climate responsibility and improving human welfare.

The decisions that emerge over the next five years on infrastructure choices will determine the ability to remain well below 2°C while also delivering on the UN's Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)

We know that the transition to a low-carbon, climate-resilient economy entails difficult challenges, but we know that effective planning and implementation will enable opportunities for sustainable development, improving lives for all.

The time to act is now. That's why we have created NDC Invest, a one-stop shop for countries to access resources for transforming their national commitments into achievable investments plans.

By taking action now, Latin America and the Caribbean in the year 2050 will be a region with  secure sustainable food productivity; unrivaled biodiversity and highly valued natural capital; economies, infrastructure and communities that are resilient to climate impacts and natural disasters; and sustainable cities designed for citizens.

We need to work together towards a sustainable development paradigm.

The Inter-American Development Bank Group (IDB Group) has announced “NDC Invest”, an integrated support platform designed to spur  transformation of Paris pledges into investment plans and pipelines of bankable projects.
We talked to Amal Lee Amin, Division Chief at the IDB’s Climate Change Division, to get the background to the Bank’s approach to supporting its client countries with their Paris implementation strategies.
Can climate goals be met if planned infrastructure isn't built right?
Four years ahead of schedule, the Paris climate change agreement is expected to enter into force next month. Latin American and Caribbean countries played a major role in the diplomatic push to secure the agreement and are now making progress on ratifying it
