IDB Superheroes of Development Award 2018

The Barbados Skills for the Future Programme has been selected as one of the finalists of the Inter-American Development Bank’s Superheroes of Development Award 2018. This Award is part of an effort to improve the performance of IDB-financed projects through systematic learning and knowledge sharing. The Barbados entry, ‘Empowering the Labour Force of the Future’, was the only programme from the Caribbean competing for the award, which recognizes the innovative solutions devised and valuable lessons learned by executing agencies while implementing projects.

These innovations will be showcased during the IDB Knowledge Week which will take place in Washington D.C. from October 1st to 4th 2018, where the winning team will be announced. The IDB will share these stories throughout Latin America and the Caribbean, so they may contribute to ongoing projects, as well as to the preparation of new operations.
