The objective of this TC is to promote evidence-based education policy-making in the region by building statistical capacity in Latin American and the Caribbean (LAC). The Center of Information to Improve Learning (CIMA) aims to improve the collection, dissemination, and use of education statistics by strengthening the data systems and the institutional capacity of education systems in the region. To achieve this objective, this TC will support three main types of activities: i) the consolidation of the IDB-hosted CIMA statistics web portal and dissemination of its knowledge products; (ii) the provision of technical assistance to improve statistical capacity in the region; and (iii) the provision of inputs to promote the development of a new generation of national student assessments.
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).
