The objective of this project is to advance Mangrove conservation/restoration by: (i) creating and implementing Conservation Agreements with local communities and stakeholders in the Morrosquillo Gulf in order to support, strengthen and implement community forest management practices and develop sustainable economic alternatives to environmental degradation; (ii) integrating wetland environments and related biodiversity into urban development processes in Barranquilla, through a public-private governance alliance, training, and sustainable financial mechanisms; and, (iii) systematizing lessons learned in order to scale-up this initiative to other coastal cities in Colombia.
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).
