According to the bank, the objective of this programmatic policy-based loan (PBP) series is to lay the foundations for the strengthening of a new territorial and urban development model that is comprehensive, inclusive, resilient, and sustainable. This is the second consecutive operation in the series which consists of two contractually independent but technically linked loans. This second operation will continue to support the process of regulating and applying the tools of the General Law on Human Settlements, Land-use Management, and Urban Development (LGAHOTDU) on the legal, institutional, instrumental, and information levels with the goal of consolidating SEDATU as the lead agency in the country's land-use planning
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).
