Aside from structural refitting, Earthquake Early-Warning systems (EEWs) are the principal method for mitigating loss of life and injury from earthquakes. EEWs provide rapid detection of earthquakes and alerting of people and infrastructure at risk. To limit the impact of future earthquakes, we aim to establish and test the feasibility of a lightweight low-cost EEW system in south Haiti. The EEW system would detect early stages of an earthquake, issue alerts, and provide critical time for users to seek cover or exit a building before the shaking arrives.
The country's counterpart amount to US$0.046 mi.
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).
