The general objective of the TC is to perform the technical, social and environmental studies required for the investment program to increase the country's electricity coverage in the areas with the greatest deficits and which are close to the existing electrical infrastructure. The technical studies will provide the designs on: (i) densification of the networks, incorporating new homes into the service in areas that are already covered; (ii) extension of the grids, by means of increasing the geographic coverage of the system effectively and efficiently; and (iii) strengthening of the networks to be extended, including the modification of its topology, as to guarantee the quality of the service required by the technical standards. In addition, environmental impact studies and environmental management plans, as well as social plans will be made in accordance with bank policies and national laws. Final products will comply with the requirements from the Public Finance Ministry, Natural Resources Ministry, Energy Ministry and Planning Secretariat to issue all the permits and licenses to proceed with the works, allowing a faster execution of the program.
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).
