Transport and mobility have a huge impact on productivity and competitiveness.

Vehicle traffic, the pollution of cities, and the congestion and saturation of passenger and cargo transport infrastructure have a negative impact on quality of life in Latin American and Caribbean countries. The private sector plays a leading role when it comes to improving transport systems in the region.


We rely on our longstanding and extensive track record financing the expansion of transport infrastructure in the region.

We support the construction and modernization of transport infrastructure and services such as ports, roads, airports, subways, and railroads. We have the technical experience and the necessary financial resources to guarantee that our projects are sustainable and have a positive impact on the region's development.


The projects we finance are usually implemented through public-private partnerships (PPPs) with private companies bearing the initial costs and sharing the risks, management responsibility, and potential future profits. The IDB Group works to make PPPs efficient with a solid regulatory framework, a transparent tendering process, and a stable financial structure.

We not only ensure the financial viability of each project but also the long-term social and economic impact. We consider environmental and social aspects, gender equality, climate change, and corporate governance.
