The objective of this program is to increase the competitiveness of the business sector of the four provinces of the Mancomunidad del Norte del Ecuador (Esmeraldas, Carchi, Imbabura and Sucumbios), with a focus on MSMEs, in an inclusive and sustainable manner. The specific objectives are: (i) to promote economic reactivation by urgently addressing the survival and development of established companies, particularly the most vulnerable (MSMEs) through technical assistance measures and strengthening business development support services, (ii) to strengthen strategic value chains with a focus on the productive linkages between MSMEs and big firms, (iii) stimulate the ecosystem of innovation and entrepreneurship as a growth path for the MNE through the implementation and articulation of entrepreneurship support services.
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).
