The Institute for the Integration of Latin America and the Caribbean (INTAL), in its role as the Technical Secretariat for COSIPLAN, has presented a new publication on high-impact projects for the physical integration and socio-economic development of Latin America and the Caribbean.
The Integration Priority Project Agenda (API) Progress Report (link in Spanish) provides a general overview of the API, tracks progress on it, and reviews the results of the work that has been carried out by the different countries on updating and analyzing projects. It includes detailed status and progress reports for each of the API’s 31 structured projects, classified by Integration and Development Hub.
An updating exercise was carried out in 2016 with the following objectives:
- To comply with the schedule that the countries decided on in 2014 regarding descriptor reviews, concluded project modules, and information for the continuous monitoring system.
- To review projects containing inconsistent information and complete those containing empty fields or partial information.
- To review projects at the pre-implementation stage so as to describe the progress made on them and their current status as precisely as possible, with the aim of facilitating their implementation.
