Project Description
The objective of this Technical Cooperation project is to support the Ministry of Labour and National Insurance (MLNI) and private sector stakeholders in building capacity and development of key inputs in order to establish the framework for a demand-driven apprenticeship program. Specifically, the Technical Cooperation will finance the design of a Matching Grant Facility (MGF) e-platform. The MGF e-platform will assist in the implementation of a formal and structured Apprenticeship Programme that addresses the country's skill needs in specific sectors. The expected outcome is that the Government uses the products financed with the Technical Cooperation for improved, formal and structured Pre-Apprenticeship and Apprenticeship programs implementation in Bahamas.

This non-reimbursable Technical Cooperation has a total cost of US$120,000, 100% of which will be financed by the IADB.

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).
