This guide, produced as a public service by Third World Resources, includes information on organizations whose principal concerns are the nations and people of Latin America and the Caribbean. Organizations for whom this region is just one among many concerns are not included.

This resource guide is divided into two regional sections: (1) Latin America (general), and (2) Caribbean and Central America (general). Following these regional sections the listings are by country. Organizations are included in the country sections either because they are located there or because their institutional focus is that particular country. Additional information is provided on: (1) educational centers, (2) reference guides, and (3) periodicals. The staff of Third World Resources welcomes notice of corrections, updates, and recommended additions to this guide. Tel: (510) 835-4692, ext. 113. Fax: (510) 835-3017.
