The objective of this technical cooperation (TC) is to fund research initiatives that can better inform policymaking in Haiti, especially in the context of the economic crisis that will result from the COVID-19 pandemic. This will be achieved by financing a series of Call for Papers of the Fonds pour la Recherche et le Developpement (FRD) of the Central Bank of Haiti (BRH). The FRD is a recently launched initiative that will fund applied research in Haiti in public policy management, economics, and finance that will contribute to the development and implementation of national policies related to growth and sustainable development. This TC will finance FRD research in the following topics: i) agriculture, natural resources, and climate change; and ii) fintech. These topics were selected due to their relevance to the Haitian economy (in terms of contributions to the GDP) and their potential to boost growth following the COVID-19 pandemic.

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).
