The Center for the Implementation of Public Policies for Equity and Growth (CIPPEC) of Argentina, a partner in the Global Development Network (GDNet) which is supported by DFID, is one of just four recipients of the Inter American Development Bank’s (IDB) Juscelino Kubitschek Prize, which recognizes outstanding contributions in the fields of economy and finance, as well as in the promotion of cultural, social and scientific progress.
CIPPEC was selected from 337 nominees from Latin America, the Caribbean and Europe. CIPPEC was one of the two institutions that have made a significant and distinguished contribution to the social and economic development of the communities of Latin America and the Caribbean in the “Economics and Finance” field, which received 95 nominations.
The award honours the late Brazilian president Juscelino Kubitschek, who spearheaded the creation of a multilateral development institution for Latin America and the Caribbean. His visionary idea culminated in the establishment of the IDB in 1959. Each of this year’s four winners will receive a prize of $50,000 at a ceremony next March in Montevideo, Uruguay.
