The bank states that the overall objective of this Technical Cooperation is to support the Government of Colombia (GoC) on the implementation of medium and long-term technical and institutional reforms to the Colombian Electricity Sector supported by the Program to Ensure Sustainable and Efficient Energy Supply. This programmatic operation was conceived in two phases to support the adoption of reforms that will ensure the sustainable and efficient supply of electricity in Colombia in order to i) reduce the vulnerability of the sector due to climate change by promoting the incorporation of non-conventional renewable energy to the electricity matrix; ii) the electrification of non-interconnected areas with non-conventional renewable energy; and iii) promote regional integration; and v) to strengthen the sector's institutional and regulatory framework.
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).
