By BBN Staff: Spain will provide around US $1.29 Million in financing toward various programs in the Americas and the Caribbean, according to the Organization of American States (OAS). 


The OAS said the funds will be available in 2017 for programmes on peace, democracy, human rights, security and development.



The Senior Advisor for Strategy and Organizational Development of the OAS, Luis Porto, and the Permanent Observer of Spain to the OAS, Ambassador Jorge Hevia, signed the agreement during a meeting at the OAS headquarters in Washington D.C.



The OAS said the contribution of Spain will be directed specifically to support the Inter-American System of Human Rights, humanitarian efforts in Colombia, confidence-building measures in the Belize-Guatemala Adjacency Zone, the strengthening of systems of civil registry, citizen security, narcotics control and the OAS Missions for Electoral Observation.
