According to the bank, the objective is to design and implement a methodology of strategic analysis of territorial sustainability (AESOT, in spanish) for the central region of Chile. This methodology takes a holistic approach to land use - considering environmental, social, political, and economic aspects of the territory - in order to generate a robust and legitimate discussion framework for the development of regional land-use planning instruments and for the decision-making processes regarding the insertion and development of future small, medium and large mining projects in the central region.
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).
