According to the bank, the objective of the project is to promote the exchange of knowledge and best practices to address hegemonic masculinity in the Caribbean region. This will be done by hosting a regional round table discussion comprising experts from academia, practitioners, Bank specialists and representatives from the region's governments. The round table discussion will help identify best practices on dealing with hegemonic masculinity and define the meeting's agenda. Following the round table, there will be a regional policy meeting, the results of which will be the definition of interventions to boost boys and men's achievements.
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).
