The objective of this Technical Cooperation (TC) is to support the coordination of digital solutions for geospatial data analysis and the protection of state assets at the national level in Suriname. By conducting diagnostic evaluations of organisational capacities for the surveillance of the country's territorial domain and supporting redress of knowledge gaps in the use of the state's geospatial information registry, this TC will provide key recommendations to combat illicit use of natural resources through institutional strengthening and the improvement of multi-institutional coordination mechanisms.
Through collaboration between the Inter-American Development Bank (IADB) and the Islamic Development Bank Institute, this TC will support the Government of Suriname in the design and use of innovative tools for geospatial analysis towards improving the monitoring, interpretation, and timely dissemination of earth observation data for effective environmental policing. More broadly, the TC will see Suriname contributing in an effort to improve the knowledge base on environmental monitoring in the Amazon region, situated at the nexus of key regional issues such as climate change, digital transformation and the fight against transnational crime.

ACCOUNTABILITY MECHANISM OF IDB / IDB INVEST
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 (IDB Invest)-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 IDB Invest 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).
