General Information

Additional Information Regarding the Notes

1.         The language set out under the heading "Use of Proceeds" in the Prospectus shall be deleted in its entirety and replaced by the following:


"An amount equal to the net proceeds of the issue of the Notes (which proceeds may be converted into other currencies) shall be recorded by IADB in a separate sub-account supporting Eligible Projects. These proceeds will be invested in accordance with the IADB's conservative liquidity investment guidelines until used to support the IADB's financing of Eligible Projects. So long as the Notes are outstanding and the account has a positive balance, the Bank shall direct an amount equal to such net proceeds to its lending projects within the fields of Education, Youth, and Employment, subject to and in accordance with the IADB's policies.


Although Eligible Projects funded by the net proceeds shall be reported on the IADB website on an annual basis, funds shall be reduced from the account on a semi-annual basis by amounts matching the disbursements made during such semi-annual period in respect of Eligible Projects.


"Eligible Projects" means all projects funded, in whole or in part, by IADB that promote early childhood care and education, through formal primary and secondary education, or facilitate labor market placement by improving the transition from school to work through vocational training. Eligible Projects may include projects in Latin America and the Caribbean that target (a) early childhood development, effective teaching and learning among children and youth ("Education Projects"), (b) early childhood care and youth-at-risk programs ("Youth Projects") or (c) labor intermediation systems, job opportunities and workforce skills ("Employment Projects").


            Examples of Education Projects include, without limitation:

·    Early childhood development programs

·    Primary education programs, which includes teacher training, bilingual education, literacy, math and science education and school infrastructure

·    Secondary education programs, which includes programs directed to improving retention and graduation, developing teaching and learning methods and providing assistance to disadvantaged children

·    Compensatory education programs

·    Teacher education and effectiveness programs

·    E-education programs


            Examples of Youth Projects include, without limitation:

·    Support for parents and caregivers to improve quality of child care

·    Youth-At-Risk programs which support interventions, policy design, and/or impact evaluations to benefit at-risk youth


            Examples of Employment Projects include, without limitation:

·    School-to-Work transition programs

·    Vocational and technical education programs

·    Human resources and workforce development programs

·    Labor intermediation systems

·    Vocational and Workforce training programs, directed to improving social and labor acclimation for youth, unemployed adults and active workers


The above examples of Education Projects, Youth Projects and Employment Projects are for illustrative purposes only and no assurance can be provided that disbursements for projects with these specific characteristics will be made by IADB during the term of the Notes."


2.         United States Federal Income Tax Matters

            The following supplements the discussion under the "Tax Matters" section of the Prospectus regarding the U.S. federal income tax treatment of the Notes, and is subject to the limitations and exceptions set forth therein.  Any tax disclosure in the Prospectus or this pricing supplement is of a general nature only, is not exhaustive of all possible tax considerations and is not intended to be, and should not be construed to be, legal, business or tax advice to any particular prospective investor.  Each prospective investor should consult its own tax advisor as to the particular tax consequences to it of the acquisition, ownership, and disposition of the Notes, including the effects of applicable U.S. federal, state, and local tax laws and non-U.S. tax laws and possible changes in tax laws.


            Due to a change in law since the date of the Prospectus, the second paragraph of "-Payments of Interest" under the "United States Holders" section should be updated to read as follows: "Interest paid by the Bank on the Notes constitutes income from sources outside the United States and will, depending on the circumstances, be "passive" or "general" income for purposes of computing the foreign tax credit." 

            Information with Respect to Foreign Financial Assets. Owners of "specified foreign financial assets" with an aggregate value in excess of U.S.$50,000 (and in some circumstances, a higher threshold) may be required to file an information report with respect to such assets with their tax returns.  "Specified foreign financial assets" may include financial accounts maintained by foreign financial institutions, as well as the following, but only if they are held for investment and not held in accounts maintained by financial institutions:  (i) stocks and securities issued by non-United States persons, (ii) financial instruments and contracts that have non-United States issuers or counterparties, and (iii) interests in foreign entities.  Holders are urged to consult their tax advisors regarding the application of this reporting requirement to their ownership of the Notes.


            Medicare Tax. A United States holder that is an individual or estate, or a trust that does not fall into a special class of trusts that is exempt from such tax, is subject to a 3.8% tax (the "Medicare tax") on the lesser of (1) the United States holder's "net investment income" (or "undistributed net investment income" in the case of an estate or trust) for the relevant taxable year and (2) the excess of the United States holder's modified adjusted gross income for the taxable year over a certain threshold (which in the case of individuals is between U.S.$125,000 and U.S.$250,000, depending on the individual's circumstances). A holder's net investment income will generally include its interest income and its net gains from the disposition of Notes, unless such interest income or net gains are derived in the ordinary course of the conduct of a trade or business (other than a trade or business that consists of certain passive or trading activities). United States holders that are individuals, estates or trusts are urged to consult their tax advisors regarding the applicability of the Medicare tax to their income and gains in respect of their investment in the Notes.
