According to the bank, the objective of the TC is to finance the costs associated with the preparation of the Integral management in Urban Waters Program (BO-L1192), in relation to the consulting services needed to support the coordination and technical advice to the beneficiary (Ministry of Environment and Water), feasibility studies (technical, financial, social and environmental), socioeconomic evaluations and other documents for the approval of the Program. The TC will contribute to the reduction of vulnerability to natural disasters and Climate Change through the definition of hydro geological models that can contribute to the design of drinking water projects, as well as to the expansion of drinking water coverage through the studies of preinvestment that will be financed for the loan operation. It is also related to the objective of improving the effectiveness of public management by strengthening the Viceministry of Water and Sanitation in the preparation stage of the Loan.
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).
