The TC will contribute to: (i) better understanding the difference between the different legal definitions of femicide in the countries of the region and the gap between these definitions and the definition established in the International Convention of Belém do Pará; (ii) support the development of a data standard on feminicide matters, contributing to the improvement of the quality of the data, as well as to the diagnosis of the situation in each of the countries and the respective comparison between them; and (iii) support government and society capacities for the generation and use of data to identify common patterns that help design interventions that address the problem of feminicide.
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).
