The objective of this technical cooperation (TC) is to design and implement a National Public Account Forum (hereinafter, FNC or Forum) in the area of influence of Anglo American mining in Chile to improve the confidence and understanding of key stakeholders and society in general with respect to mining activity. The Forum will be designed to generate a recurrent instance of information, communication and relationship, specifically between communities, local authorities and the company. It will also be a space for the exchange of opinions on the central issues of interest to the different stakeholders, the work and commitments of the company, which will be documented in order to identify good practices and opportunities for improvement. In this way, it is expected to concretize the commitment to transparency and accountability, using independent reporting mechanisms based on the survey of inputs from key stakeholders.

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).
