Project Description

From the IDB: "The objective of the TC is to support the Government of the Dominican Republic in its ongoing efforts to recover degraded watersheds through reforestation in the upper watersheds and agroforestry in the middle and lower watersheds. The expected results of the Program are to improve ecosystem services, especially quantity and quality of water, reduce farmers´ poverty and vulnerability to climate change. The TC will finance consulting services, public consultations and workshops to assist the Administrative Ministry of the Presidency, Ministry of Agriculture and Ministry of Environment and Natural Resources in the conceptualization, design, and implementation at a larger scale of the proposed interventions. The operation is the "Sustainable Agroforestry Development Program - DR-L1120", which aims to improve sustainability of rural communities in high priority watershed through the adoption of low-carbon and climate-resilient agroforestry and forestry technologies by small farmers."

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).
