Evaluation of IDB's support to the Plan Puebla Panama Initiative
Pires, Jose Claudio Linhares
The IDB has been supporting the Plan Puebla Panama (PPP) since it was launched in 2001 by the Central American (CA) countries and Mexico as a regional strategy created to pursue economic and human development as well as to preserve the ecological wealth of the Mesoamerican region. OVE evaluated the results of the Bank's PPP activities by conducting analysis of the Bank's support of the PPP's planned activities. In light of its findings, OVE's main recommendation was that the Board should renew Management's mandate to promote the PPP and approve budget allocation to finance the Bank's support to the PPP-related activities.
