According to the Bank’s website, the objective of this regional TC is to promote the integration of diversity, equity and inclusion in a transversal way in the digital government policies of the region. In order to measure the progress of these inclusive and diverse digital transformation policies, a tool will be developed to support decision-making based on evidence and to allow the visualization of data for the whole of society (the Regional Digital Government Observatory). It is planned to analyze the legal and regulatory framework necessary for the secure and responsible exchange of data between public and private actors, in order to take advantage of the benefits of the data economy without affecting the owners of the data. Likewise, in order to contribute to strengthening the capacity of governments in the digital sphere, evidence will be collected and strategies will be supported to renew the institutional design of the functions, competences and mandate of the governing bodies of digital government of the different countries of LAC. Finally, it is planned to implement a module to measure cybercrime in LAC in victimization surveys at the national and regional levels of LAC, this allows us to discover a phenomenon that has had an impact on criminal practices in the face of the increasing use of digital technologies. This seeks to improve the information available for the design of digital government, citizen security and justice public policies and to be able to disseminate the lessons learned in LAC.

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).
