From the IDB: "The objective of this technical cooperation is to support the responsible and sustainable development of the extractive sector of the Dominican Republic, both in mining and hydrocarbons. The technical cooperation has three main goals: (i) to strengthen the institutions that regulate and direct the sector; (ii) to foster productive value chains derived from extractive investments in order to take advantage of the sector's potential to promote economic development; and (iii) to promote gender equity in the economic benefits and governance of the extractive sector."
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).
