Project Description

According to the bank, IFC, the client, and key stakeholders are joining forces to improve the low productivity of dairy producers in the Orinoquía region while introducing climate-smart agriculture practices into the dairy supply chain. To do this, the project will develop and execute a comprehensive strategy that encompasses the following approaches:

• Sensible business models compatible to the needs of dairy farmers in the region;
• Capacity building to strengthen the skills of dairy producers and extensionist agents;
• Introduction of innovative agricultural practices that respond to the challenges of increasing climate volatility in the region;
• Access to input/logistic finance for small and medium scale dairy producers.

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/
