The objective of the operation is to alleviate the impact that a severe or catastrophic natural disaster could have on the country's finances, by increasing the availability, stability, and efficiency of contingent financing to address emergencies. Additionally, the operation seeks to enhance the comprehensive disaster risk management of the country by fostering improvements in five main areas to be monitored through the Comprehensive Natural Disaster Risk Management Program (CDRMP): (i) disaster risk management governance; (ii) risk identification; (iii) risk reduction; (iv) preparation for emergency and response; and (v) financial protection and risk transfer.
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).
