The objective of SWMP II is to support Belize in its efforts to reduce environmental pollution through the improvement of solid waste management practices in emerging tourism destinations in northern and southern Belize, as well as in Belize's capital, Belmopan. Specifically, the project is financing investments to improve solid waste transport, recovery, and final disposal in towns and villages in the Northern (Orange Walk and Corozal) and Southern (Stann Creek and Toledo) Corridors and in Belmopan. The project is also aimed at strengthening SWaMA as the lead agency in the waste management sector. The dumpsites to be closed are those of Corozal Town, Orange Walk Town, Belmopan City, Dangriga Town, Placencia, and Punta Gorda Town. In these areas, transfer stations are presently being built. The objectives of the operation are to be achieved through investments in two components.

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).
