High quality children's literature is central to achieve international principles of respect for diversity within and between households, communities, and cultures (Adam, et al., 2019). Children's literature can help children understand their own culture and that of others. The proposed Technical Cooperation (TC) will respond to the described challenge by fostering access to diverse children's literature. The overall objective is twofold: (i) create a Latin American City Where We Read to Our Children, including a literacy campaign with the participation of Korean, Swedish, and Latin American authors of children's literature, and the creation of a digital platform to provide access to children's literature; (ii) implement an experimental pilot to sensitize and coach parents and educators on how to promote children's reading.
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).
