The objective of this Technical Cooperation (TC) is to analyze and systematize data and information related to gender gaps in education and the promotion of socioemotional skills in the Caribbean in order to deepen our knowledge on how to create an inclusive learning environment and develop 21st century skills. The specific goals of this TC are to: (i) conduct a detailed diagnostic and systematization of the evidence about boys' under-performance in the English-speaking Caribbean and review effective programs to foster positive gender attitudes, building on existing studies and available data; (ii) explore potential causes of boys' underperformance by analyzing the existing curriculum and current teacher practices to identify potential gender biases and skills related to inclusion; and (iii) advance the quality of the education management information system (EMIS) in the Caribbean countries and create awareness about the importance of these systems to monitor gender gaps and other education outcomes.
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).
