This Technical Cooperation (TC) will complement IDBG's efforts to systematically measure the results of the Bank's operations in the areas of poverty reduction, gender equality, including female employment, and climate change. Improvements in these three areas have proven to lead to economic growth and increased standards of living. Hence, increasing the effectiveness of IDBG's projects in such areas will contribute to achieve this goal in Central America, Haiti, Mexico, Panama and the Dominican Republic (CID) countries. This TC will provide additional measures on the results of IDBG operations at a narrow geographical level in CID communities by leveraging data sources that link existing survey data and satellite imagery using machine learning. This analysis will provide a more holistic assessment of the positive externalities generated in those areas where IDBG interventions are located.

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).
