According to the bank: "The LAC Cities Platform will focus on supporting creditworthy municipalities in a range of urban infrastructure sectors, including transport, municipal solid waste, water and waste water, green buildings, municipal finance, as well as smart city technologies. The Platform will support municipalities to plan and implement quality infrastructure projects, make them bankable and finance them by leveraging commercial capital, thereby complementing scarce public-sector resources and increasing total investment in sustainable urban infrastructure projects. Entities eligible to receive support include municipalities and regional governments, as well as private sector companies providing urban infrastructure services."
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/
