This series of four maps shows the major periods of regional progress in America. In Latin America these date back a long way, starting in 1826 with the Hispanic-American congresses. From the late 19th century until 1948, Pan-American conferences were organized. After World War II, intergovernmental organizations were created and multiplied, especially in Central and South America and the Caribbean.
