We support a sustainable post-pandemic recovery that aims at protecting the most vulnerable people, building economic resilience and providing sustainable investments to target the climate and environmental emergency.
EIB activity in the region in 2021
The EIB supported the Americas and the Caribbean with €742 million of financing for eleven projects in 2021, contributing to sustainable and inclusive development and to climate action.
The EIB is the European Union’s international development bank. We promote the EU's principles, values and objectives and contribute to stable growth in countries beyond Europe’s borders.
As part of Team Europe, the EIB has increased its development finance, especially in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Team Europe is a global recovery package that combines resources from the European Union, Member States and the EIB, and supports the most vulnerable countries and people most at risk around the world.
Neighbourhood, Development and International Cooperation Instrument (NDICI) - Global Europe
Part of our operations in the region are governed by mandates from the European Union. From 2021 onwards, the majority of our operations in Americas and the Caribbean will be backed by the NDICI - Global Europe, the EU’s main financing tool to contribute to eradicating poverty and promoting sustainable development, prosperity, peace and stability.
For more than 50 years, the EIB has been the European Union’s international development bank. Our key investments across the world help create stability, promote sustainable growth and fight climate change everywhere.
