The general objective of the Technical Cooperation (TC) is to support the redesign of the institutional framework of the new Ministry of Science, Technology, Knowledge and Innovation (MCTCI) of Chile, created in 2018, in its relationship with the National Agency for Research and Development (ANID), as well as with regional authorities, thus incorporating the new challenges of decentralization in the country. In addition, it seeks to analyze mechanisms to incorporate cross-cutting issues (such as gender, climate change) in its different instruments, and the design of monitoring and evaluation mechanisms for national innovation activities, drawing on lessons learned from other countries in the region, as well as from member countries of the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD).
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).
