The Inter-American Development Bank (IDB), together with the Brazilian Development Bank (BNDES), the National Works and Public Services Bank S.N.C. of Mexico (Banobras) and ALIDE (Latin American Association of Development Financing Institutions) launched the Latam Projects Hub. The new platform offers investors a unified view of investment opportunities in concessions and public-private partnerships in Latin America, including strategic information on the projects.
The idea is to capitalize on BNDES’ portfolio of infrastructure and privatization projects –the world’s largest of its kind, according to a ranking by consulting firm Infralogic – and the Banobras-sponsored Mexico Projects Hub as a starting point for the new regional portal, which will be expanded to other countries in the region with the IDB and hub manager ALIDE’s support.
The information available will grant projects more visibility and a regional portfolio outlook for investors, helping them prepare in a timely fashion to participate in bidding processes. It will also allow Financial Institutions to follow the regional infrastructure market and seek to have a multi-market performance.
The portal allows users to filter projects by country, sector, project type, and status. By clicking on a project of interest, users will also access a project file with relevant information.
Along with its projected expansion to other countries, the new platform will have information on the financial, institutional, social, environmental, and climate sustainability of infrastructure projects, with methodological support from the IDB.
To access the platform, visit www.latamprojectshub.org.
The Latam Projects Hub is the result of an IDB Technical Cooperation, with resources from the International Climate Initiative (IKI).
