Project Description

This project is a continuation of TC HA-T1253 (see discription below) containing the activities that could not be included on it due to the limited availability of funds. 

TC HA-T1253 = According to the bank, the objective of the TC is to prepare the studies and investment plans to be financed by the HA-L1135 program and also to improve the management of Haiti's public water operators (CTEs). At the request of the Government of Haiti, the Bank is preparing operation HA-L1135 to finance, among others, the implementation of drinking water infrastructure in the cities of Cap-Haitien and Gonaïves, the second and third most populated cities in the country. These projects will cover urban, peri-urban and slum contexts. Including these two localities in the new operation implies that the 24 most important cities of the country will have had some type of financing to improve their drinking water infrastructures in recent years, mainly through financing from the IDB, the World Bank (WB) and the Spanish Agency for International Development Cooperation (AECID)

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).
