The main objective of the Technical Cooperation (TC) is to contribute to the region to increase the levels of digitization in the energy sector. A more digitalized energy sector will contribute to a faster decarbonization and energy transition. The specific objectives are: (i) to support governments and utilities to develop digitization strategies in order to be more efficient and provide better services; (ii) to provide cybersecurity training to managers and regulators as well as technicians and operators; (iii) support the region in the use of machine learning, artificial intelligence, and data science to accelerate energy efficiency and better manage the electricity demand; (iv) to increase knowledge and use of blockchain in the region; (v) to improve the use and collection of sector data on digitization issues and include them in the Energy HUB; (vi) to disseminate and share among the region all the technical and practical knowledge generated in the division and with this TC.
ACCOUNTABILITY MECHANISM OF IADB
The Independent Consultation and Investigation Mechanism (MICI) is the independent complaint mechanism and fact-finding body for people who have been or are likely to be adversely affected by an Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) or Inter-American Investment Corporation (IIC)-funded project. If you submit a complaint to MICI, they may assist you in addressing the problems you raised through a dispute-resolution process with those implementing the project and/or through an investigation to assess whether the IDB or IIC is following its own policies for preventing or mitigating harm to people or the environment. You can submit a complaint by sending an email to MICI@iadb.org. You can learn more about the MICI and how to file a complaint at http://www.iadb.org/en/mici/mici,1752.html (in English) or http://www.iadb.org/es/mici/mici,1752.html (Spanish).
