Sustainable infrastructure: Paving the way for future generations in Latin America and the Caribbean
Infrastructure is the backbone of any society. It provides the framework that enables communities to function, economies to prosper, nations to evolve, and most importantly citizens to accede to their development aspirations.
Yet, infrastructure is often overlooked in discussions about sustainable development, despite its crucial role. This is particularly relevant in the face of climate change, where regions like Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC) are increasingly impacted by intensified rainfall, tropical storms, hurricanes, and droughts, among others.
