The general objective of this TC is to support the comprehensive digitalization of the Dominican Republic by way of developing a strategy for deploying rural broadband infrastructure and introducing a nationwide digital broadcasting system that would contribute to improved connectivity of rural production centers as well as better access for rural populations to health and education services. Under the national ICT plan called "Republica Digital", DR is driving to extend fiber-optic networks further into remote and rural areas. On top of it, she also has repeatedly committed to complete analog switch off (by doing so successful transition to digital broadcasting) in close collaboration with the Bank and advanced countries. Through this project, we hope to provide DR a strong tool on how to achieve those goals in a cost-effective and timely manner.

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).
