Given that National Statistics Organizations (NSOs) utilize public funds to create data for use as a public good, the key public goods created by this project include the following: (i) regionally shared data infrastructure to improve access to data; (ii) regional open data, data privacy, and data sharing policies; (iii) increased capacity of a network of NSOs and other interested contributors incentivized to implement data handling and best practices for accurate, quality data; and (iv) a regional roadmap for increasing investment in data infrastructure and expanding data themes. Finally, the project will pilot a cutting edge blockchain digital solution for incentivizing regional actors for collective action in data science, including its use to document data provenance and quality for trusted data reuse and its use as a governance system for sustainable transparent coordination of regional data stakeholders.
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).
