For more than 25 years, Tetra Tech has been actively engaged in diverse government and commercial projects in the Latin American and Caribbean region. Our expert teams work in the water and sanitation, agriculture and economic growth, environment and sustainability, energy, and mining sectors.

Latin America has developed into one of the world's most dynamic economies; yet large segments of the region’s population have not benefitted from this growth. Poverty persists and social wellbeing of indigenous people remains among the lowest in the hemisphere. Home to the vast resources of the Andes and the Amazon, Latin America is rich in biodiversity and vulnerable to the effects of climate change. Given these acute needs and the region’s strategic importance, international development organizations are actively engaged there. Tetra Tech serves as an implementing partner to deliver projects that are helping to improve the quality of life and protect the environment.

Tetra Tech’s commercial and industrial work in the Latin American and Caribbean region spans the agriculture, energy, mining, oil and gas, and transportation sectors. Our teams have provided cutting-edge services for some of today’s most economically important projects—from specialty engineering design for the Panama Canal’s new third set of locks to environmental permitting of off-shore wind energy and underwater gas terminals. Tetra Tech offers services for the complete project life cycle from and maintains registered offices and in Brazil, Chile, Colombia, El Salvador, Mexico, Panama, Peru, and Puerto Rico.
