This Technical Cooperation (TC) will seek to promote the growth and resilience of women-led/owned SMEs (WSMEs), with a special focus on WSMEs that are tapping into value chains. The program's specific objectives will be to improve: 1) WSMEs' access to value chains, and 2) WSMEs' access to disruptive technologies and digital financial inclusion. We3A will pay special attention to mitigating post-COVID-19 economic turbulence, both by supporting WSMEs that have been negatively impacted and by identifying solutions and new business opportunities, such as WSMEs that leverage disruptive technologies to innovate.
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).
