From the IDB: "High rates of violence in El Salvador affect the performance of schools, and the ability of students to learn. In the past, Medellin, Colombia, experienced similar periods of high rates of violence, which affected their students, but has managed to implement multi-sectoral policies to address violence and lessen their impact on the education system. This CT-Intra seeks to generate an exchange of policies to reduce violence between Medellin and El Salvador. It will allow representatives from El Salvador to assess the impact of those policies in-site. Therefore, it should allow El Salvador learn from effective policies to reduce rates of violence, with a focus on schools. Given the multisectoral nature of violence, the activities of this CT Intra will include representatives from education, security and municipalities sector."
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).
