The International Center for Tropical Agriculture (CIAT) supported the development of administrative and population databases for Latin America and the Caribbean through their Geographic Information Systems laboratory and the Land Use project. Silvia Elena Castaño, Rosalba Lopez, Alexander Cuero, Carlos Nagles, Elizabeth Barona and Peter Jones developed many of the foundation data sets used in this project. We thank Liliana Perez for her work to verify the quality of the database. We are grateful for the cooperation of the United Nations Economic Commission for Latin America (ECLAC), the World Bank and all the countries of Latin America and the Caribbean that supported this effort. This version of the database was made in close cooperation with the Center for International Earth Science Information Network’s (CIESIN) Gridded Population of the World, Version 3 project. The The Inter-American Development Bank (IADB), United Nations Environment Program (UNEP/GRID Sioux Falls , UNEP/GRID Arendal), the World Resources Institute (WRI), and the International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI) provided funding and support throughout the development of this project.
