Latin America Initiative

Latin America faces important development challenges. Although many countries in the region have implemented solid macroeconomic and financial policies, large segments of the population have not reaped the benefits from higher economic growth. Based on the analysis of CGD’s substantial in-house expertise in the region, the initiative’s goal is to advance recommendations to policymakers in Latin America as well as those in developed countries and multilateral organizations to support the region’s efforts to climb the development ladder and reach shared prosperity.

CGD also hosts most meetings of the Latin American Committee on Macroeconomic and Financial Issues (CLAAF), which is comprised of leading experts, former central bank governors, and ministers of finance from the region.
