The project is expected to (i) reduce Aracaju municipality’s consumption of electricity and greenhouse gas emissions, including CO2, through the use of energy-efficient lights and advanced street lighting management systems; (ii) expand street lighting services to underserved communities in the municipality; (iii) reduce safety risks related to poorly lit streets; (iv) improve lighting quality and lower the frequency of service interruptions; (v) improve infrastructure for the illumination grid, modernizing it and integrating features as previously developed in smart cities; and (vi) promote overall urban improvements.
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/
