IDB Opens Second Phase of Consultations on Social Strategy

    The Intern-American Development Bank launched Jan. 25 the second phase of public consultations to discuss its draft strategy on institutions for growth and social welfare.

    “The first consultation phase, which focused on the strategy’s profile, has been very helpful,” said Mario Sangines, who leads the process of preparing the strategy. “The comments we have received have helped to confirm the selection of subjects, expand the strategy’s scope, and strengthen its relevance regarding the key issues of growth and welfare.”

    The second phase, which runs until Feb. 23, aims to seek feedback and contributions from governments, civil society organizations, social experts, academics, and other stakeholders in Latin America and the Caribbean and other regions to bolster the strategy’s effectiveness and relevance.
