The objective of this cooperation is to enhance technological innovation and capacities of local governments in analyzing Big Data to develop evidence-based violence prevention policies. This TC will strengthen sub-national governments' collection, visualization, and analysis of data, including ‘big data', to better understand the levels, determinants, and perceptions of crime and violence, as a way to improve the quality of crime prevention and control policies. The results of this TC will also have a demonstrative effect which will highlight the benefits and limitations of using ‘big data' to inform policy making at sub-national and national levels alike.
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).
