According to the IADB website, the Digital transformation for IPAs has become almost mandatory in a very short time together with investment tools more suited to businesses realities, but few agencies are ready to respond to investors. At the same time, the pandemic has caused a serious decline in gender equality in the labor and investment markets, particularly in developing countries. The objective is, on one hand, to support IPAs to incorporate digitalization in their services, country value proposition, teams, and processes, and on another hand to identify the most suitable tools to stimulate FDI and what role FDI can play in reducing the gender gap.

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).
