The Inter-American Development Bank (IDB)presents the 2017 edition of its flagship report Development in the Americas, entitled Learning Better: Public Policy for Skills Development

Despite governments’ best efforts, many people in Latin America and the Caribbean don’t have the skills they need to thrive. This book looks at what policies work, and don’t work, so that governments can help people learn better and realize their potential throughout their lifetimes.
