MICI engages with Caribbean civil society organizations to promote access
MICI, along with other independent accountability mechanisms from the Caribbean Development Bank (CDB), the World Bank, the International Finance Corporation (IFC), and the United Nations Development Program (UNDP), held a two-day workshop with more than 30 organizations from the Caribbean on November 15th and 16th, 2021.
Participant organizations based in Haiti, Guyana, Belize, Grenada, Barbados, St. Vincent, Trinidad and Tobago, Suriname, and Jamaica, that work on different sectors such as human rights, environmental protections, and gender empowerment, learned about the role of the institutions in the Caribbean Region and general requirements for filing a complaint to an Accountability Mechanism. During the second day, once the basics where covered, the participants were presented with case studies from dispute resolution and investigation processes, to better understand the potential results and limitations of both venues.
This workshop was the first virtual event for the Caribbean region conducted jointly by the independent accountability mechanisms.
