Project Description
If provided by the financial institution, the Early Warning System Team writes a short summary describing the purported development objective of the project and project components. Review the complete project documentation for a detailed description.

The project proposes the use of traceability and processing technologies to raise the level of quality and competitiveness at all stages of the chestnut value chain (collection, processing and marketing), implemented by an alliance between an organization of producers and gatherers, and a leading exporter company in the chestnut sector in Peru. In the gathering stage, emphasis will be placed on obtaining the data and information on the chestnut tree, the area where it is found, the owner of the chestnut tree, and good practices for collecting walnut. In its capacity to organize producers and gatherers, RONAP (Organic Collectors of the Peruvian Amazon Nut) proposes to improve the productivity of its chestnut trees by incorporating the use of payoles in the different collection centers of its associates, a strategy that ensures that the Chestnut has been stored without being exposed to moisture and has also been dried. This chestnut does not develop imperfections or spoil and a higher yield is obtained when processing it. Practices will be documented using drones and cameras installed in each collection center, and must also be coded in such a way that the data and registration of photos and videos associated with that batch code and the path of the nut from the tree to processing plant.

Contact Information
This section aims to support the local communities and local CSO to get to know which stakeholders are involved in a project with their roles and responsibilities. If available, there may be a complaint office for the respective bank which operates independently to receive and determine violations in policy and practice. Independent Accountability Mechanisms receive and respond to complaints. Most Independent Accountability Mechanisms offer two functions for addressing complaints: dispute resolution and compliance review.

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).
