Latin America and Caribbean

Fighting poverty by supporting good governance

Many states in Latin America and the Ca­rib­bean have ex­pe­rienced con­ti­nu­ous eco­nom­ic growth since the turn of the mil­len­nium. In many coun­tries in the region, this economic growth, combined with comprehensive economic and social policy measures, has significantly improved people's lives. Despite these positive trends, the region still displays extreme disparities. Emerging coun­tries such as Brazil and Mexico have become im­por­tant global players. On the other hand, de­vel­op­ing coun­tries such as Honduras, Guatemala and Nicaragua continue to struggle with state fragility and huge pov­er­ty.
