This evaluation assesses the work done by the Inter-American Development Bank Group (IDBG) on public-private partnerships (PPPs) in infrastructure in Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC). The evaluation comes at a unique time for IDBG given the recent merge-out of private sector operations into the Inter-American Investment Corporation (IIC). The change in strategic focus of the Multilateral Investment Fund (MIF), which used to have a PPP focus area, may also create new opportunities and challenges in terms of skills, organization, and coordination among different parts of the IDBG.
