The Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean (UN ECLAC) - Cooperation Partner
The Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean (UN ECLAC) was founded in 1948 as a regional commission of the United Nations, with the mandate of undertaking research and giving policy advice on the economic problems of Latin America. Since then it has been a leading actor in debates, institution building and economic analysis in the region. Policymakers and academics in Latin America have strong links with UN ECLAC; and decades of technical support endowed UN ECLAC with a direct experience in dealing with Latin American problems in a very wide set of issues. In addition to its role as a source of technical capabilities and its large experience in topics like innovation, growth and international trade, UN ECLAC centralises databases and statistics from all the Latin American countries.
