Project Description
The program's objective is to collaborate with the government's efforts to restore infrastructure and basic services affected by the heavy rains that caused varying degrees of flooding in seven provinces along Argentina's coast. In particular, the program aims to support the affected population's transition to recovery of its regular social and economic activities by rehabilitating road infrastructure such as roads and highways; water infrastructure related to flood defense systems; public structures, such as damaged schools and public buildings appropriate as evacuation centers. It also intends to help reestablish basic utilities such as water and electricity service in affected areas; and lastly, to contribute to the cleanup efforts in areas capable of enhancing vector effects.
Investment Description
  • Inter-American Development Bank (IADB)
Contact Information
ACCOUNTABILITY MECHANISM OF IDB/ IIC 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 (IIC)-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 IIC 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).
