LAPOP's work is made possible through its partnership with the following institutions:

logo The U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) is an independent agency that provides economic, development and humanitarian assistance around the world in support of the foreign policy goals of the United States. USAID supports long-term and equitable economic growth and advances U.S. foreign policy objectives by supporting economic growth, agriculture and trade; global health; and, democracy, conflict prevention and humanitarian assistance.

logo The Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) supports efforts by Latin America and the Caribbean countries to reduce poverty and inequality. As the largest source of development financing for Latin America and the Caribbean, IDB is committed to achieving measurable results, increased integrity, transparency and accountability. IDB desires to bring about development in a sustainable, climate-friendly way.


The Tinker Foundation was created in 1959 by Dr. Edward Larocque Tinker. His lifelong interest in the Iberian tradition in the Old and New Worlds has directed the Foundation's focus on Latin America. Today, the Foundation has concentrated its interests on promoting equitable economic growth and public security, improving sustainable stewardship of the region's environmental resources, and increasing educational opportunities for children attending public primary and secondary schools. Additionally, and as a corollary to these priorities, the Foundation hopes to foster a better understanding of the region in the U.S. and of the impact of U.S. policies on Latin America; and to support the work of those engaged in research of environmental and governance issues in Antarctica.




The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) is the UN's global development network, an organization advocating for change and connecting countries to knowledge, experience and resources to help people build a better life. UNDP works with 166 countries on their own solutions to global and national development challenges. As they develop local capacity, they draw on the people of UNDP and UNDP's wide range of partners.
