UNICC is pleased to announce that the African Development Bank (AfDB) and the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) are new User Organizations. UNICC’s Business Relationship Manager for AfDB is Prado Nieto; for IDB it is Elena Sierra.
The African Development Bank (AfDB), with headquarters in Abidjan, Côte d’Ivoire, works to spur sustainable economic development and social progress in its regional member countries (RMCs), contributing to poverty reduction. The Bank Group achieves this objective by:
- Mobilizing and allocating resources for investment in regional member countries (RMCs)
- Providing policy advice and technical assistance to support development efforts.
The Inter-American Development Bank (IDB), located in Washington, D.C., works to improve lives in Latin America and the Caribbean. Through financial and technical support for countries working to reduce poverty and inequality, the IDB helps improve health and education, and advance infrastructure. Its aim is to achieve development in a sustainable, climate-friendly way.
The IDB prioritizes social inclusion and equality; productivity and innovation; and regional economic integration in its development work across Latin America and the Caribbean. In doing so, it addresses the cross-cutting issues of gender equality and diversity; climate change and environmental sustainability; and institutional capacity and the rule of law.
