The program has two general objectives: (i) to maintain the ecosystem services provided by the coffee forest; and (ii) to improve food security for small-scale coffee producers. The specific objective is to boost resilience to climate change, productivity, and the incomes of producers in the coffee forests, through: (i) adoption of climate-smart agricultural technologies; (ii) incentives for marketing and cooperative initiatives; and (iii) modernization of coffee sector governance.
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).
