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 program’s objective is to help raise productivity and increase national and regional integration in Honduras, by upgrading the quality of its road infrastructure. The program’s specific objective is to help improve the level of service provided on two of the Strategic Corridors of Honduran National and Regional Integration (CEINRH), specifically the logistics and tourism corridors, by building additional lanes and refurbishing targeted segments. This will result in lower vehicle operating costs and shorter travel times for users. These two corridors are being targeted because, under the public-private partnership scheme currently operating in Honduras, the logistics and tourism corridors have been placed under concession contracts, and the government has undertaken to deliver several upgraded and refurbished segments for operation and maintenance by the concession holder. The rehabilitation and improvement works will include the following: an increase in the number of lanes to keep pace with demand; reinforcement of the road surface structure; improvement of intersections, drainage, and bridges; and the incorporation of road safety works, among other items. In addition, training will be provided to women for nontraditional skilled activities in the construction sector and institutional strengthening will be provided for the State Secretariat of Infrastructure and Public Services. According to the IADB's Environment and Safeguards Compliance Policy, this has been classified as a Category “B” operation. The works in question generate medium- to low-level environmental impacts; and the environmental management measures to be implemented are known by the executing agency and by the construction and supervision companies. As the works will be executed on existing main corridors, no sites of archaeological or cultural interest, indigenous communities, or protected natural areas are expected to be affected. However, resettlement and land impacts are expected.

Independent Accountability Mechanisms receive and respond to complaints. Most Independent Accountability Mechanisms offer two functions for addressing complaints: dispute resolution and compliance review.
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 You can learn more about the MICI and how to file a complaint at,1752.html (in English) or,1752.html (Spanish).
