The objective of this Technical Cooperation is to support the implementation of the IDB Group's Gender Perspective Employment Action Framework (MAEG). The MAEG proposes a strategy for mobilizing actions and accelerated investment in response to the COVID crisis to recover, create and transform employment in the region with a gender perspective, articulating the responses of the different areas of the IDB Group and recognizing the impacts differentiated from this crisis on female employment. The specific objectives of this TC are: (i) to support the process of transversal inclusion of the issue of employment with a gender perspective in IDB Group operations with special emphasis on female employment and dialogue to generate new direct investment operations with this approach; (ii) support the systematic measurement process of the contribution of IDB Group operations to employment; (iii) communicate the knowledge, interventions, and results associated with the MAEG to strengthen the framework.
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).
