The project plans to support to the Government of Peru (GoP) in its engagement with the OECD and the implementation of business environment improvements based on international best practices. In particular, the project will leverage the OECD Country Program in Peru to focus on contributing to both the diagnostic activities, as well as implementation of short term recommendations. For longer term reforms, other projects should follow.
The work will concentrate mainly in five technical areas, which were defined in consultation with the Government and the OECD:
1. Innovation. The project will support a better approach to targeting innovation policies by establishing a methodology to analyze the quality and impact of public support to innovation.
2. Statistics. The project will support the ongoing OECD Statistics Policy Review, and bring experiences from countries that have accessed OECD to the Peru context.
3. Environmental management. The project aims at generating domestic knowledge on how to adapt policy, laws and reform sequencing when adopting OECD environmental standards.
4. Probity and Integrity. The project aims at contributing through drafting manuals based on international best practice and capacity building, for the application of anti-bribery instruments, institutions and practices.
5. International Taxation. The project facilitates the participation of Peru in a global initiative to prevent base erosion and profit shifting.
The project is implemented in close coordination with the World Bank, who is supporting the strengthening of the strategic positioning of Peru with the OECD, including the institutional set up to coordinate with the OECD, and Peru position vis a vis OECD members.
ACCOUNTABILITY MECHANISM OF IFC
The Compliance Advisor Ombudsman (CAO) is the independent complaint mechanism and fact-finding body for people who believe they are likely to be, or have been, adversely affected by an IFC or MIGA- financed project. If you submit a complaint to the CAO, they may assist you in resolving a dispute with the company and/or investigate to assess whether the IFC is following its own policies and procedures for preventing harm to people or the environment. If you want to submit a complaint electronically, you can email the CAO at CAO@worldbankgroup.org. You can learn more about the CAO and how to file a complaint at http://www.cao-ombudsman.org/
