This Technical Cooperation (TC) will fund the implementation of the Gender and Diversity Lab (GDLab). The GDLab seeks to produce cutting-edge applied research that informs policy design to reduce inequalities both in terms of opportunities and economic development for vulnerable population (specifically: women, people with disabilities, afro descendants, indigenous peoples, and the LGBTQ+ community) in LAC. The GDLab will produce knowledge and rigorous evidence and disseminate them. This evidence will be used to guide the design or reform of programs and policies implemented by LAC governments and to design IDB's operations in LAC.
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).
