In order to support the preparation of a new investment program (Phase II - Todos Somos Pazcifico), it was agreed with the Government of Colombia to process a technical cooperation (TC) to complement and adjust drinking water and basic sanitation studies, and to support the overall preparation of the second phase, as a complement to the actions of the loan CO-L1156 "Comprehensive Intervention Program for the Colombian Pacific", aiming to improve the conditions in which the population lives with the implementation of actions in water and basic sanitation.
It is estimated that this 2nd phase will be approved in 2021 for an amount to be defined by the country's authorities. In order to guarantee the adequate preparation and execution of the operation, the following components of the TC have been defined: (i) pre-investment studies; (ii) institutional strengthening of the Executing Unit; iii) development of management and planning instruments.
In the ToRs, the analysis of aspects related to: inequality, gender, inclusion, innovation and local development will be included when applicable, which will ensure that the works to be executed based on the designs financed by this TC, include these aspects (when applicable), thus complying with the priority themes of the INE and the Bank.
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).
