Project Description
If provided by the financial institution, the Early Warning System Team writes a short summary describing the purported development objective of the project and project components. Review the complete project documentation for a detailed description.

The main objective of this TC project is to support ANA on the design of specific strategies, instruments and tools to articulate and to support the PRH-Paraguay implementation and to consolidate a detailed multisectoral investment master-plan (including water, sanitation, irrigation, tourism, land protection and conservation). Prioritized projects within the plan, to be funded by the IDB or other funding sources, will be at least at an alternative analysis level. More specifically, this TC will support ANA in four main areas key for the PRH-Paraguay implementation: (i) instruments for water resources governance and management (surface and groundwater); (ii) water use related conflict resolution (nexus approach); (iii) water resource conservation; and (iv) investment planning. This TC intends to advance on the work proposed by the GEF (Global Environmental Facility) project currently in preparation by the IADB and UNEP for the Pantanal, by fine tuning the studies needed to move forward with specific actions and interventions to be implemented to promote the sustainable development of the Pantanal and to facilitate the pre-identification of specific projects to be financed on the Brazilian side of it (70 to 80% of the system). This part of the Pantanal will positively impact the riparian region of the countries downstream (Bolivia and Paraguay) and that will advance on the consolidation of a coordinated and integrated tri-national investment portfolio for water management and sustainable land management. The promotion of green infrastructure and Natural Base Solutions and other "green" innovative finance mechanisms and instruments will be prioritized under this TC. The fact that the Pantanal is a National and World Heritage site and that the Pantanal National Park is crucial to better protect and manage the water resources for sustainability of the Pantanal, developing monitoring and alternative strategies to implement those actions addressed in the Plan - such as possible institutional frameworks, economic instruments, water conservation studies and establishment of goals and impact indicators - has become a great challenge. The estimated cost of implementing the PRH-Paraguay's actions is estimated at R$24 Million, and the multisectoral investment portfolio associated to its implementation, the Brazilian investments on the basin is estimated to be around US$69 Million.

Contact Information
This section aims to support the local communities and local CSO to get to know which stakeholders are involved in a project with their roles and responsibilities. If available, there may be a complaint office for the respective bank which operates independently to receive and determine violations in policy and practice. Independent Accountability Mechanisms receive and respond to complaints. Most Independent Accountability Mechanisms offer two functions for addressing complaints: dispute resolution and compliance review.


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 You can learn more about the MICI and how to file a complaint at,1752.html (in English) or,1752.html (Spanish).
