The general objective of this TC is to implement the Safe Mobility Strategy (2020-2021) in a comprehensive manner, which includes road safety and inclusive mobility components and can provide continuity and strengthen the actions, studies and guidelines developed through TC RG-T3020. Therefore, support LAC countries in stabilizing and reducing the number of traffic accidents and their consequences, as well as providing mobility options that are comprehensive, safe, accessible and affordable. To achieve this, this TC will be supporting the countries of the region in the preparation and implementation of strategies, projects, actions and initiatives focused on three main components: 1) Safe Infrastructure: from road safety audits and inspections to road network evaluations; 2) Urban Mobility: including speed management programs, safe roads to school, the use of tactical urban planning for the prioritization of active mobility (walking and cycling) and the development and implementation of Vision Zero/Safe System plans and strategies; and 3) Public Policies: Design and implementation of rules, regulations and laws that seek to reduce exposure to risk and improve countries' response capacity to the crisis caused by road traffic injuries, for example those related to vehicle safety, land use, guidelines for safe infrastructure and mandatory vehicle insurance as a prevention tool.
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).
