The objective of this Technical Cooperation (TC) is to develop a research and public policy agenda that encourages the elimination of barriers and disincentives for female labor force participation in Central America, Mexico, the Dominican Republic and Haiti (CID), which would result in a greater and more inclusive economic growth. The TC will study and propose incentives and solutions to this problem in three relevant areas: i) labor market, ii) education and technical training, and iii) family and social environment. Gender equality is considered a social objective in most CID countries, but the degree of priority has varied from country to country.
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).
