The objective of this TC is to extend broadband connectivity in rural areas through PPP (Public Private Partnership) models to contribute to the universality of digital services regardless the sociodemographic and economic conditions. Specifically, the TC will support LAC countries in: (i) increasing the awareness on how PPP could contribute to take broadband services in rural areas not covered by the private sector; (ii) creating guidelines for the introduction of PPP in the field of ICT; (iii) developing master plans for PPP in rural areas; and (iv) defining mechanism to reinforce the cooperation between the public and the private stakeholders.
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).
