The objective of the CT/INTRA is to facilitate learning by police officers within the Barbados Police Service through dialogue with the Jamaica Constabulary Force towards enhancing institutional responses of Caribbean law enforcement agencies to domestic and sexual violence. This capacity building exercise will develop a regional community of practice among senior law enforcement officers tasked with managing or overseeing the dedicated domestic and sexual violence units (DDSVUs). The expected result of this knowledge exchange workshop is a cadre of senior officers with enhanced competencies to: (i) diagnose the current strengths and weaknesses of their institutional responses to domestic and sexual violence; (ii) acquire and manage institutional resources to deliver a consistently high standard of specialised services for victims of said violence be they human, technological, or informational; and (iii) nurture a wider community of practice to address the root causes of domestic and sexual violence.
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).
