The objective of the programme is to strengthen the efficiency, efficacy and equity of Jamaica's fiscal policy and management to address the health crisis and economic consequences of COVID-19, through the design and implementation of effective and fiscally responsible policy measures. Specific objectives include: (i) ensure timely availability of public resources to address the health emergency caused by COVID-19; (ii) strengthen the counter-cyclical role of fiscal policy through the temporary protection of employment and income of vulnerable households during the health and economic crisis; (iii) support the effective and continuous provision of essential goods and services through fiscal policy and management measures; and (iv) promote economic and fiscal recovery.
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).
