The objective of the project is to support the Ministry of the Interior of Ecuador in building capacity for the management and analysis of migration flow data and the modernization of the biometric migration control system, as well as the fight against the illegal trafficking of migrants. To do so, this technical cooperation intends to contribute to the institutional strengthening of the Ministry of the Interior in order to mitigate the effects of transnational organized crime and migratory crimes, especially smuggling, as well as the generation of migratory statistical information for timely decision-making and the design of public policies aimed at supporting the integration process of the migrant population. To this end, through technical assistance, it is intended to: I); Formulate the Action Plan against the Smuggling of Migrants, which will develop a strategy, protocol and practice of migration intelligence that will provide mechanisms to anticipate threats, their prevention and subsequent mitigation; and, II) Promote the interoperability of migration systems based on the collection of information to modernize the biometric services of the migration registry.
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).
