According to the Bank’s website, the project aims to provide a special combination of innovation and expertise to simultaneously solve and address the fragility and inequalities of the local food system and transform it into more sustainable, inclusive, and resilient to climate change. The project will produce a series of world-class, robotics-enabled, climate resilient & solar powered hydroponic container farms (stationed in poor and vulnerable communities) that will produce fresh fruits, vegetables, and organic leafy greens. This technology has been tried, tested, and proven under the umbrella of Eeden Farms and has produced thousands of pounds of fresh leafy greens which is currently being sold to the wider population.

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).
