The present project aims to pilot the use of AI, remote sensing and data analytics with a group of farmer organizations and cooperatives with the purpose of implementing increased climate resilience techniques in agricultural production. Another of the results expected is the capacity for farmer associations and cooperatives to better predict yield and production for improved commercialization and sales. The project will seek partnerships with organizations like CIAT (Centro Internacional de Agricutura Tropical) in order to carry out the data capture and analysis for the project.
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).
