The objective of this operation is to improve the Financial Inclusion (FI) of women and WLBs by supporting public sector efforts to improve the availability and use of disaggregated data as well as to adequately incorporate gender aspects in policies, programs, strategies and other innovative initiatives in the financial sector. This objective would be achieved via: (i) supporting data collection initiatives led by public institutions, (ii) testing pilots and innovative interventions with high potential of replication across LAC, (iii) strengthening institutional capabilities to collect sex-disaggregated data and serve women; and (iv) actively disseminating the knowledge and recommendations.
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).
