This project seeks to estimate the medium-term impacts of providing access to daycare to poor children in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Faced with excess demand for daycare centers (known as crèches in Brazil), the government of Rio allocated available slots to children between 0 and 3 years of age by lottery in December 2007. Outcomes on lottery winners and losers will be collected from school records of these children in 2017, when they are 9-12 years of age. The study would be the first to evaluate the medium-term effects of an at-scale daycare intervention with a Randomized Control Trial (RCT), in developed or developing countries.
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).
