From the IDB: "Through the preparation of the operation ME-L1158, which objective is to promote renewable energy and co-generation, Banobras and the IDB have initiated a discussion on the best way to build a global and structured environmental and social strategy. In this context, we would like Banobras to exchange and share experiences and best practices with other banks in the region that have recently and successfully gone down a similar route: Bancoldex and Findeter in Colombia, and Caixa and BNDES in Brazil. Those four institutions have designed and implemented dedicated strategies, set-up the dedicated teams and/or systems in accordance, and have succeeded in generating substantial new products and business from the new model."
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).
