The New Zealand Aid Programme has worked with Latin America since the 1970s. Our priority there is agricultural development. In 2013, we began to work in the Caribbean, focusing on energy (particularly geothermal), disaster preparedness, and tertiary and vocational training.


Total aid to Latin America and the Caribbean comprises programme funding for country-specific activities in these regions, as well as other funding which can include scholarships, regional initiatives, Partnerships Fund activities, and humanitarian response.
