The general objective of this project is twofold. First, it will provide support to the Governments of Jamaica and Trinidad and Tobago, respectively, in their efforts to better manage and monitor strategies to reduce violent crime through cutting-edge research as well as management and monitoring tools. Secondly, it will improve the Governments' ability to scale up and establish systematic public health frameworks for violence prevention. In light of the challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic, this proposed TC will address two priority areas for the Bank's response (i) social safety net for vulnerable populations; and (ii) economic productivity and employment.

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).
