The objective is to define the roadmap to be carried out by Cormagdalena over a 15-year period, in order for them to have the tools necessary for effective authority over the Magdalena River. This roadmap should be governed mainly by four lines of action: (i) reforestation; (ii) pollution; (iii) artificial flow restriction; and (iv) shore conservation. These lines of action are important to ensure the river's navigability, which navigability the Colombian Government is actively promoting. Additionally, it is necessary to have an information system that should allow for monitoring of the basin and facilitate decision-making, in order to decisively advance the objective of this technical cooperation.
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).
