Project Description

The objective of the CT/INTRA is to facilitate learning by technical officers within the Government of Barbados through dialogue with their Government of Jamaica counterparts on the digital governance component of the modernization program currently in operation in the public service of Jamaica. The information gathered will center on recent initiatives to establish a national identification card system, data exchange platform and digital service delivery applications as well as development of a management information system for human resources. Ultimately, the knowledge gained through the study tour will inform the design and implementation of similar initiatives in Barbados.

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).
