Project Description

The objective of this project is to provide definitive scientific evidence on the best form of care for children in state care in São Paulo, Brazil. With that objective in mind, the Early Institutionalization Intervention Impact Project (EI-3) will: (a) Establish an innovative Enhanced Foster Care (EFC) service, and (b) Test whether EFC achieves better outcomes for children than Enhanced Institutional Care (EIC) through a randomized control trial (RCT) and cost benefit study. The results from this research will be informative to policy-makers across the LAC region. IDB technical cooperation resources will help finance the implementation of the project, complementing PSG resources from the Fundacion Maria Cecilia Souto Vidigal (currently as counterpart funding in the budget). Evaluation activities are financed by other funders including Lumos Foundation and Instituto Pensi.

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).
