The project embraces 4 countries – one per sub-region – within these countries are some specialized in minerals, other in agricultural products or petroleum among others commodities. This selection brings the opportunity to cover the main LAC natural resources’ logistics chains. Additionally, this focus allows that the analysis and mainly the policies recommendations would be helpful for other countries with a similar exportation pattern. For this reason, the project also will work closely with the regional physical integration initiatives as a way to promote the necessary changes in the policy framework for the regional integration of the logistics infrastructure, a step fundamental for a more sustainable and competitive exploitation of natural resources in LAC.
The objective of the project is to strengthen the capacity of selected Latin American and Caribbean governments and the region’s major physical integration initiatives in designing and implementing logistics strategies and policy elements to contribute towards a more diversified use and sustainable exploitation of natural resources.
