Latin America and the Caribbean

Overview

Although Latin American and Caribbean countries continue to experience high levels of inequality and public security concerns, the region has seen robust economic growth in recent years. The region’s poverty rate is at its lowest level in three decades, but sustained economic growth depends on increased productivity and innovation. TechnoServe has implemented agricultural and enterprise development programs in the region since 1969, working with local, regional and multinational partners to strengthen sustainable farms, businesses and industries.
