Project Description

The objective of this programmatic series is to help increase access and improve the quality of water and sanitation services in the Central District through a process of reforms that permit decentralization of those services to the municipal level, thereby enhancing sector governance and management in a context of climate change and with a view to achieving water security. The objective of this first operation is to contribute to the design and enactment of legal and sector instruments. The specific objectives are: (i) to promote operational and management development so as to increase the efficiency of water and sanitation services provided by the Municipal Water and Sanitation Unit (UMAPS); (ii) to help increase the financial sustainability of services provided by UMAPS; (iii) to strengthen UMAPS planning; and (iv) to strengthen the sector framework though better governance, regulation, and management of resources in a context of climate change, and improve service delivery to better meet demand. This is the first loan in a series of two consecutive single-tranche operations that are technically related to one another but independently financed as programmatic policy-based loans.

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).
