Red PLAC: Network for Pensions in Latin America and the Caribbean
Social security systems in Latin America and the Caribbean face important challenges. Achieving universal coverage requires rethinking the pension systems in the region and establishing solid institutions that can promote and implement the necessary changes for an effective social security. The IDB created Red PLAC in 2015 to support the efforts of Latin American and Caribbean countries in improving the institutional and technical capacity of pension institutions. In this way we seek to contribute to the strengthening of pension systems in the region, with a special focus on their sustainability, adequacy, equity, and efficiency.
