The objective is to support the evaluation of the effectiveness of a virtual labor training and certification program for workers, whose jobs have been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic in Costa Rica. The program is being implemented by the Ministry of Labor and Social Security (MTSS), the Costa Rican Investment Promotion Agency (CINDE) and the online learning platform Coursera. CINDE, in its role as the entity responsible for attracting foreign investment to the country and ensuring that companies find workers with the required skill set, leads the program.
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).
