According to the Bank’s website, the project seeks to enhance and expand the capabilities achieved in its previous phase of supporting the implementation of cross-border electronic signatures and conditions for cross-border digital transactions. Having managed to accelerate its adoption in the Mercosur countries (Argentina, Brazil, Paraguay and Uruguay), it seeks to strengthen reliable and secure electronic transactions as a boost to economic and social integration with equity, and expand it to countries in the Pacific, America Central, and Caribbean. Work will continue at three speeds given the regional difference in digital maturity. Specific deepening objectives: (i) deepen and expand the technical frameworks for cross-border digital signature validation to more countries; (ii) deepen and expand the secure information exchange models for cross-border digital services to more countries; (iii) align with the previous objectives pilot experiences of cross-border digital authentication; (iv) multiply the knowledge acquired towards ministers, legislators and chancelleries.

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).
