Welcome to WiConnect!

The IDB Group is the leading source of development finance for Latin America and the Caribbean. It helps to improve lives by providing financial solutions and development know- how to public and private sector clients. The group comprises the IDB, which has worked with governments for 60 years; IDB Invest, which serves the private sector; and IDB Lab, which tests innovative ways to enable more inclusive growth.

The IDB Group works in five levels of engagement for coordinating actions between these organization types:

  • Information
  • Dialogue
  • Consultations
  • Collaboration
  • Partnerships

WiConnect contributes to foster this joint work between stakeholders as a geo-referenced networking platform for civil society, governments and private sector.

It contributes creating shared value agendas by giving visibility to civil society organizations (CSOs), local governments and companies in various sectors and countries from Latin America and the Caribbean.
