The objective of this TC is to support the governments of Latin American and Caribbean region improving the execution of projects in Transport (TSP) with emphasis on countries where the Bank's portfolio presents important challenges in execution, such as: Argentina, Guatemala, Haiti and Suriname. This will be developed through the implementation of solutions based on the generation of knowledge with evidence, for which the experience and lessons learned in the region will be taken as a reference. In order to improve execution efficiency, these solutions must incorporate technological innovations and the use of data for the remote monitoring and supervision process; as well as, providing advice to the governments of the region based on other projects financed by the Bank through the TSP Division. The activities proposed in the TC seek to promote the improvement of the execution of the projects as a central objective, through use of technological innovations that, due to lack of knowledge or interest, are not promoted in the countries. This will be achieved through training for the executing agencies, showing the lessons learned from the information collected, as well as the execution of pilots that will improve the execution of the projects.
The specific objectives of this TC are: (i) to provide technical support to national and local executing agencies in generating knowledge based on experience in executing projects financed by the Bank; (ii) support executing agencies and governments in the adoption and implementation of innovative technologies during the project execution phase; and (iii) train executing agencies of national and local entities and institutions to improve the execution of projects and the proper management of work contracts with technological innovations.
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).
