Project Description
The Program's objective is to repair, stabilize and protect road infrastructure affected caused by Hurricane Matthew, in order to reestablish road connectivity and the access of the population to basic services and to resume the normal flow of economic exchanges and humanitarian aid. The program will provide resources to finance road repair and stabilization works, cleaning tasks, the purchase of goods and services and institutional support related to the implementation of the emergency works. Program resources will fund activities that will benefit families and the economies in the southwest area affected by the hurricane and intervened by the program. The main indicators are: (i) restoration of 450 km of main roads that are part of the road network in the three intervened departments affected through the restoration of its pavement, repairs in three bridges, and repairs in culverts and slope stabilization, totaling 19 critical points of the road network; (ii) number restored PV systems (including solar mini grids and health centers); (iii) number of restored connections to customers; (iv) rehabilitation of 50 km of medium and low voltage lines; and (v) two solar purifier water plants installed.

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).
