CollaborateUp conducted a review of the potential for private finance in the non-state education sector in Latin America and the Caribbean, drawing on six previously conducted country market assessments (Dominican Republic, Ecuador, El Salvador, Guatemala, Haiti and Paraguay), significant additional desk research, stakeholder interviews with governments, donors, investors, and educational providers in the region, and the team’s own extensive background in education and Latin America and the Caribbean.

From this work, CollaborateUp concluded that while there are barriers across the region that impact risk and the role of the private sector in education, there is significant opportunity for private investment in the education sector in Latin America and the Caribbean. Specifically, we found opportunities for blended finance in the non-state sector in the region. CollaborateUp has produced a report that expands on these findings, provides analysis and data to support its conclusions, and targeted recommendations.
