Project Description
IDB: The general objective of this Technical Cooperation (TC) is to provide support to LAC countries in fostering IoT adoption by LAC supply chains. The specific objectives are to: (i) examine the current state of the adoption of IoT in LAC supply chains; (ii) identify constraints to supply chain productivity that could be overcome by the adoption of IoT; (iii) revise existing policies related to IoT; and (iv) design a roadmap for the development of a National IoT Strategy, aimed at increasing IoT adoption in both the productive sector and public procedures related to private sector development. Two countries will be selected to implement the activities encompassed in this TC based on IDB strategic dialogue and loan portfolio. The ability to replicate this project in other countries in the Region will be facilitated by, among others, laying out the pillars for the development of public policies in IoT through the design of a roadmap for National IoT Strategies; and having examples and inputs for other countries in the Region of what contents such roadmaps could have.
