Projects
CAREC is a practical, project-based program that has grown from 6 projects worth $247 million in 2001, to 166 projects worth $27.7 billion in 2015.

Projects Supported by the CAREC Program

From a modest start, the number and value of CAREC projects-including loans, grants, and technical assistance-have grown rapidly from 2001 to 2015. Regional cooperation has proved to be a powerful planning tool that helps the CAREC countries prioritize and implement national projects that bring regional impact and benefit.
