The main objective is to support the beneficiary countries in implementing measures to improve mobility conditions and urban transport, emphasizing the application of new technologies and the generation of measures to the disincentive to use a private vehicle. The specific objectives include: (i) supporting the countries in new urban transport projects; (ii) support the countries in the conceptualization of current urban transport planning policies aimed at discouraging the use of private vehicles; (iii) promote the development of pilots in urban transport technology applications and digital interventions to support objectives (i), (ii) and (iv) contribute to the generation of greater institutional capacity in the region in terms of sustainable transport. The development objective is to formulate strategies to generate capacities through innovation platforms to promote the use of public transport, in this way it is also expected to reduce the use of private motor vehicles and their externalities, with supervision and under the institutional guidelines of the authorities. local and national. For his part, the pilot proposes a car-sharing platform similar to Uber Pool. In which, users can request the service through a mobile application. The algorithm will detect the best route to fill empty seats and with the necessary hygiene measures in the context of Covid-19. In this way, it is sought to make efficient the times and costs and the energy of the vehicles in the transfers, especially in trips of first necessity (health or supply), especially in hours of maximum demand. Through the application, performance indicators can be recorded. The use of low-emission electric or hybrid vehicles will also be prioritized.
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).
