Project Description
If provided by the financial institution, the Early Warning System Team writes a short summary describing the purported development objective of the project and project components. Review the complete project documentation for a detailed description.

The Inter-American Development Bank has released little information about the specific objectives and components of this co-financing project. It says that the general objective is to increase agricultural income and food security for smallholder farmers in selected areas of Haiti. The specific objectives that the Bank cites are to increase agricultural productivity and improve the use of natural capital through the adoption of sustainable technology. 

The original Bank website for HA-L1107 includes more information about the overall project. The project is centered around technology transfer to aid smallholder farmers, and will involve the following components:

  1. Applied research and training for the development and adaptation of sustainable agricultural technologies.
  2. Promotion of sustainable agricultural technologies. 

The program will partially or totally subsidize farmers' access to agricultural inputs (fertilizers, pesticides, etc), equipment, and services related to these technologies. 

Early Warning System Project Analysis
For a project with severe or irreversible impacts to local community and natural resources, the Early Warning System Team may conduct a thorough analysis regarding its potential impacts to human and environmental rights.

For the original project HA-L1107, the Bank has identified the following risks:

  • Use of hazardous materials
  • Generation of solid waste
  • Moderate impact on water quality, quantity, and availability. 

The project location is prone to earthquakes, flooding, hurricanes, landslides, droughts, and climate-realted changes that will exacerate the issues. 

Investment Description

The Inter-American Development bank has not specified the type or amount or type of investment involved in this co-financing from the International Fund for Agricultural Development. 

Contact Information
This section aims to support the local communities and local CSO to get to know which stakeholders are involved in a project with their roles and responsibilities. If available, there may be a complaint office for the respective bank which operates independently to receive and determine violations in policy and practice. Independent Accountability Mechanisms receive and respond to complaints. Most Independent Accountability Mechanisms offer two functions for addressing complaints: dispute resolution and compliance review.


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).
