The objective of this technical cooperation is to support the responsible and sustainable development of the lithium sector in the Province of Jujuy in Argentina, from its exploration stages, to extraction, and governance, improving the institutional capacities of the government and the engagement between industry, civil society, and government. The technical cooperation has three main goals: (i) to strengthen the technical and environmental evaluation and control of lithium mining projects; (ii) to support the mainstreaming of basic technical, environmental, and social dimensions of lithium mining and the adoption of effective multi-stakeholder engagement practices; and (iii) to promote the exchange and dissemination of knowledge amongst lithium-producing regions.

ACCOUNTABILITY MECHANISM OF IADB
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).
