The proposed solution is the establishment of an ecosystem of open innovation and entrepreneurship in the gastronomic and food sector of Ecuador. The innovation ecosystem includes: 1) spaces for specialized training in food production, transformation and marketing processes, 2) spaces for research and innovation that allow actors in the gastro-food value chain to have access to equipment and advice for design innovative culinary prototypes, and 3) technical and financial mechanisms for incubation, acceleration, and corporate venturing of high gastronomic value ventures for the food industry.
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).
