The objective of the Technical Cooperation is to assess the nutritional status in vulnerable school populations in Nicaragua, affected in 2020 by the COVID-19 pandemic and two hurricanes. Resources from the TC will be used to finance a survey of beneficiaries of the Comprehensive School Nutrition Program (PINE) on Nicaragua's Caribbean coast. The TC will support the design and development of a diagnostic of the nutritional status and practices of school-aged children beneficiaries of PINE.
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).
