AbstractSeven key developmental risks for Latin America are isolated: a) ecology and deforestation, b) natural disasters, c) drugs and crime, d) political stability, e) access to clean drinking water and sanitation facilities, f) health of the population and g) education level of the population. Selected factors are aggregated into an integrated risk index for the twenty three Latin American countries. Countries most susceptible to the indicated set of the threats are identified.
