The main objective of this Technical Cooperation (TC) is to promote private public collaboration to boost trade and investment in Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC), in the context of the IDB Group's recently launched Private Sector Partners Coalition, by providing technical assistance to ensure an appropriate conceptualization, implementation, upkeep and impact of the Phase II of the Data Lake initiative which will enable the IDB and the private sector to collaboratively collect and aggregate relevant data (investment related costs and procedures; relevant rules, regulations and incentives for investors, trade and double taxation agreements, market access conditions, suppliers, etc.) into a repository that can be used by companies and policymakers to strengthen value chains and attract foreign investment in the region.
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).
