Business Improvement Districts (BID) are a specific form of multi-sector partnerships, where local governments, the business sector and land owners jointly work towards realizing well-managed, clean, safe, attractive urban environments. Despite a broad application in some countries of the Global North, implementation in Latin America has been punctual and at best experimental. Little is known about the success factor of BID (and similar programs) in the world and the major impediments to its application in LAC. Within the project, IDB supported by GIMLA, aims at reviewing the existing literature, developing a toolbox, analyzing case studies, and implementing pilot programs.
