Project Description
If provided by the financial institution, the Early Warning System Team writes a short summary describing the purported development objective of the project and project components. Review the complete project documentation for a detailed description.

In April 2021, a concession auction was held for CEDAE - Companhia Estadual de Aguas e Esgoto do Rio de Janeiro. It was the largest sanitation infrastructure concession in the country's history. AEGEA won 2 lots (blocks 1& 4) of the dispute, with offers of more than 100% of goodwill on the concession fee. The two concessions will have 35 years tenor each, involving an investment that will sum altogether approx. BRL 24.4 billion, in addition to BRL 15.5 billion collected with the payment of the concession fees. The goal, in addition to water distribution universal, is to achieve 90% of sewage collection and treatment for 10 million people.

Contact Information
This section aims to support the local communities and local CSO to get to know which stakeholders are involved in a project with their roles and responsibilities. If available, there may be a complaint office for the respective bank which operates independently to receive and determine violations in policy and practice.

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).
