The objective of this Technical Cooperation (TC) is to support the national and sub-national authorities of several countries in Latin America with the design and implementation of innovative technologies in transport projects. Specifically, this TC seeks to support the following activities: (i) Design innovative projects with BIG DATA applications added to artificial intelligence for demand forecasts that can be used in transportation planning and management; especially for vulnerable groups. (ii) Carry out the implementation of pilot projects of transport technologies which incorporate new trends in urban merchandise distribution, transport planning tools and MaaS (Mobility-as-a-service) (iii) Use Blockchain technology applied to transport projects including, but not limited to: project management throughout full project cycle; logistics and freight; and climate change accountability tools regarding the measurement, reporting and verification (MRV) of GHG emissions in transport projects. (iv) Technology applications for transport projects under execution to better monitor, supervise and evaluate the progress of works.
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).
