According to the bank, the general objective is to contribute to the productivity and economic integration of Belize. The specific objective of the supplementary additional financing is to provide additional resources to complete the George Price Highway (GPH) Rehabilitation Project (3344/OC-BL), which aims to substantially improve the road connectivity within Belize's main districts and with Central America. This will be achieved through the rehabilitation of the GPH road infrastructure between miles 47.9 in Belmopan and 67.3 in Santa Elena to national standards, thereby decreasing travel time and costs, reducing road fatalities and injuries, and ensuring road accessibility by improving the Climate Change (CC) resilience of the corridor.
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).
