Over the last four years, the average participant growth rate in Latin America and the Caribbean has been above the global average. The region has second largest total number of participants after Europe and has more than 15 networks. A Regional Center also works to support networks and advance the UN Global Compact in Latin America and the Caribbean.
Latin American and Caribbean Local Networks are particularly active in convening learning events. At the same time, they are starting to orient their work towards the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) using the UN Global Compact’s Post-2015 Business Engagement Architecture. To do so, they are identifying local priorities, aligning their work with global engagement opportunities, and taking part in partnerships and other collective action projects that advance the SDGs.
