The objective of this TC is to support the governments of the Latin American and Caribbean (LAC) region to advance towards a more inclusive infrastructure, in particular transport, water and sanitation and energy. This can be done through the inclusion of universal accessibility standards in the infrastructure projects, providing training and educational programs for People with Disabilities (PwD) to promote labor inclusion. The specific objectives of this TC are: (i) to provide technical support to national and local executing agencies in the design and implementation of inclusive infrastructure and energy projects; (ii) support executing agencies and governments in the adoption and implementation of public policies that promote the inclusion of PwD; and (iii) to provide training for the executing agencies (national and local) to implement innovative initiatives to advance in a more inclusive sector.
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).
