The general objective of this Technical Cooperation (TC) is to support the State of Sao Paolo to develop, implement and demonstrate sustainable energy measures, in order to promote their implementation at a large-scale. The specific objectives are: (i) to develop financial mechanisms to achieve distributed generation (DG) with solar energy and its implementation at a large-scale; (ii) to support both the development and implementation of DG projects with solar energy in public buildings ; (iii) to support both the development and implementation of electricity generation projects from solid waste; and (iv) to disseminate the results obtained for a potential replication of this type of projects. It is expected that this TC will help promote new public policies on DG, reduce: public expenditure, CO2 emissions, energy dependence, and help diversify the state's energy matrix.It is important to highlight the replication potential of the measures and projects developed with this TC, in other states and cities of Brazil.
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).
