Project Description

The objective of the TC is to strengthen the capacities of the animal and plant health and food safety services in Brazil in order to improve access to export markets and the quality of food consumed in the country. For this, technical, operational and institutional studies will be needed, which requires national and international consultancies that provide experience and technical knowledge. These studies will be the basis for a solid technical dialogue with government authorities and other relevant stakeholders about the weaknesses and challenges faced by the animal and plant health and food safety services, the risks and negative effects on the competitiveness of the Brazilian agricultural sector, and the priority investments and other interventions.

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).
