About this capture
Our work in Latin America and the Caribbean
The BBC World Service Trust is focusing on the environment, health and governance and human rights in Latin America and the Caribbean.
The Latin America and the Caribbean region has experienced sustained economic growth since 2004.
The economy grew 5.4 percent in 2006 and 4.5 percent in 2005, after experiencing its strongest growth in 25 years (6%) in 2004.
However 47 million people in the region (more then 8% of the population) are still living in extreme poverty.
